Because Corona applies when shopping, and public transportation, a mask is mandatory in Germany. This makes it difficult to Detect and Unlock the smartphone.

FOCUS Online explains how the face detection works well with the mask:

Apple announced that the iPhones with the new operating system iOS 13.5 immediately recognize if someone is wearing a mask, and then automatically on the PIN input change. But there is a Trick, like your Smartphone, you recognize, also with a mask.

Face ID, despite the mask – how it works

About the settings for both iPhones as well as Android models an alternative appearance to the face detection can be set.

  • iPhone: settings > Face ID and Code
  • Android: settings > Biometrics and security

the photo must be a mask over the lower half of the face is drawn, but only either to the left or to the right, the other half of the mouth and nose must remain visible.

At best, you fold the mask once vertically in the middle and hold with two fingers. So you are now the alternative appearance. Thus, the Smartphone should recognize you with the mask, and automatically unlock.

note: In older Galaxy models, it may be that it still works. The facial recognition software is then too weak and includes no three-dimensional structures in the face.
