i have mi 8 it's working totally fine except it's face unlock is not working properly. anyone can unlock it.
my classmate was able to unlock my phone with his face. it is totally unsecure , as claimed by Xiaomi it's an IR face unlock system which is more secure then other Android face unlocks.

kindly tell me if this is a bug and when will it be fixed.

That's weird, I've not experienced this with my phone. Which MIUI version are you running?

unless you have the Mi 8 EE the face unlock is not really that secure, they even tell you that when setting it up.

Apple's FaceID is the most secure in the world with the Mi 8 EE being the second most secure. most of the rest that were tested by researchers where fairly easy to trick.
