Survey results: what is your favorite method to unlock mobile phones?

We recently launched a survey to find out our readers’ favorite mobile phone unlocking method. Considering the varied options that mobile phones offer today in terms of security, it is interesting to know which is the most used.


Most users use the biometric sensor (70%)

The overwhelming majority of our followers prefer the fingerprint sensor as their favorite method of unlocking. The truth is that the fingerprint reader is already present on most mobile phones, even in the entry ranges.

Therefore, this is certainly the most comprehensive method. Whether at the rear of the equipment, on the side, or under the glass, the biometric sensor is practical and nowadays the readers are quite fast, requiring no more than a simple touch to unlock.


Facial unlocking won second place (22%)

Some of our readers prefer to use facial unlocking. However, the most effective front sensors are usually found in top of the range equipment. Apple is notorious for its Face ID, present since the iPhone X and basically the only way to unlock current iPhones, in addition to passes.

Huawei’s Mate line also has a history when it comes to front sensors. Starting with Mate 20 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer started to fill the front with 3D sensors, in order to exponentially improve facial unlocking.

There are still those who use standards and codes, or nothing (8%)

Who doesn’t remember having an unlock pattern on the phone in the early days of Android? As archaic as the option may be, there is a small part of our readers who prefer this method. We still have a small percentage that does not use anything, choosing not to have any security on the device.
