    I have to start with saying I hardly know anything about smart phones. I don't have one.

    The Dutch Consumer Organisation "Consumentenbond" has recently published an article (in Dutch) in which it says that the face recognition to get access on a smart phone can be fooled by using a photo.
    The article gives a list of smart phones on which it can be done and on which not, according to their test.

    If I didn't use here the right words, I apologize!
