RecognizeMe: The First Facial Recognition Security for the iPhone [Cydia]


Third party developers in Cydia tend to get overlooked sometimes with their innovative tweaks and apps. The latest upcoming app is called RecognizeMe, and it brings facial recognition to the iPhone 4. By utilizing the front-facing camera, it will scan your face to unlock your passcode.

RecognizeMe is the first Facial Recognition security for the iPhone. Although not perfect, RecognizeMe does a pretty good job at facial recognition, given optimal conditions. RecognizeMe sits on the iPhone passcode screen, so it serves as an alternate to, rather than a replacement for the passcode.

The following video demonstrates RecognizeMe. Clearly, it takes way too long for the scan of your face to take place–nevertheless, this is a pretty tweak that will be available in Cydia for $6.99 for the next three weeks.

    the facial recognition definitely need some speed improvement to be practical
    there is really no point to hold the phone stationary to focus on the face and looking like an idiot 
    how is it any better than typing the 4 digits passcode?

    Why every app on cydia are more expensive than Apple AppStore now. I bought a similar app ,from apple appstore,that really worker in a few seconds .

    And I found that there Is more free App on AppStore than Cydia now.All cydia can offer is 3 days trial for a few app.You must purchase most of them if you want to know how It work.There is no point anymore for jailbreaking since Apple successfully match all cydia technology .
