    Hello, today i tought about activating the face unlock on my OnePlus 6, i never user it before and i tought i'd give it a try. The problem is i cant activate it. the phone asks for the pin, i enter IT and then it asks for it again and so on...it just keeps asking for the pin. the pin is correct. i restarted the phone 3 Times...nothing changed. i changed the pin again...not working. i disabled the pin and fingerprint and tried activating the face unlock and it asks me to set a pin pe password ore model for my device, i set a pin or model or password and then again it asks for that in a loop.

    Okay!.. Now clear the data and force stop the face unlock in the same settings page and reboot the device once.

    If you still have the problem then file a bug report with below link coz you're on the beta build so it may be bug in that specific update...

    I had been unable to get into Face Unlock, and also App Locker
    When I turned off "Developer Option", it started to work.
    I hope this helps someone!
