    A secure folder in your photos app for private photos.

    US had it for about 3 years so not sure it ever will make it global.

    Beta 2 seems much smoother

    How are people finding the fingerprint reader after a few months of use? Whilst it worked fine when I first got it it fails far more than succeeds now... Really pretty annoying! Have done the normal add multiple records of the same finger but it still seems very flakey.
    Would be really useful if it had somthing face unlock as an alternative....

    Yeah I've noticed the same with the fingerprint scanner.
    It seems very temperamental when your hands aren't totally dry (Slightly sweating etc)
    I think my Pixel 2 was the same when I first had it though. It does feel like I'm constantly cleaning the sensor and my finger tip to get it to register.

    No issues on scanner at all. It's instant and everytime for me.

    Only this for me, but that's the same for most FPS I thought...

    I never had much issues using it in the gym on my P2 but it's pretty much unusable on the P5 unless I wipe the sensor and fingers every time. Maybe I should try doing my prints again.

    Sometimes have the same issue when fingerprints aren't fully dry where it won't recognise. Similarly, a wipe of the reader itself seems to fix the issue.

    Has anyone been testing the beta versions of Android 12 on the Pixel 5? And if so, what are the thoughts so far?
