Use your 'eyeprints' to unlock the Alcatel Idol 3

Using your eyes to unlock your phone works better than you think, and it makes you feel like a secret agent.

We’ve seen face unlock (now known as “Trusted Face”) on Android for a while, and various vendors have used fingerprint scanners — some very successfully, some not so much. But the Alcatel Idol 3 comes with a new way to manage your lockscreen security, and it uses eye biometrics with software from EyeVerify.

It’s a simple concept — use the uniqueness of your iris pattern (that’s the colored part of your eyeball) to tell your phone that it’s OK to unlock. We’ve seen similar things in James Bond movies, usually protecting underground nuclear missile silos or other things that need to be protected from super-villains, and I’ll admit that having it on your phone is pretty freaking cool.
