To take the mystery out of the phone, we’ve put together a list of the 10 most important things every Pixel 4 owner should do with their phone to get the best experience possible from the device.

Google’s new secure Face Unlock feature is the only form of biometric security on the Pixel 4 since they decided not to include a fingerprint sensor on the phone. During the phone’s initial setup process, you’ll be prompted to activate the feature and scan your face, but if you decided to skip over this feature initially, you can always turn it on later.

  • Open Settings > Security Face Unlock
  • Enter your patter, PIN or unlock code
  • Tap Set up face unlock > Next > Start to begin the face scanning process
  • Center your face on the screen and look around until all the sections are completed
