It seems like just the other day that we first got fingerprint scanners on our Android phones, but the option has been available on devices for over six years now.

Fingerprints aren’t the only way to unlock phones though, as face unlock is another option offered by plenty of manufacturers. And then of course you have other methods like PIN/pattern unlock and more.

So that got us wondering how Android Authority readers unlock their smartphones. Do you go for fingerprint authentication, face unlock, PIN/pattern authentication, or something else like Bluetooth Smart Unlock or iris scanning? Give us your answer by taking the poll below!
