Issue Date : 2013.3.12.
An example method
includes capturing, by an image capture device of a computing device, an image
of a face of a user. The method further includes detecting, by the computing
device, whether a distance between the computing device and an object
represented by at least a portion of the image is less than a threshold
distance, and, when the detected distance is less than a threshold distance,
denying authentication to the user with respect to accessing one or more
functionalities controlled by the computing device, where the authentication is
denied independent of performing facial recognition based at least in part on
the captured image.
