In Cyanogenmod 12, how do you unlock based on your face? I went to "smart lock" and trained facial recognition. Now I go back to the Screen lock and there is still no option to unlock with the face.

  1. Set a screen lock with pattern or pin or password
  2. Now smart lock will be enabled in Settings->Security below Owner Info
  3. In smart lock select trusted face.
  4. Lock your phone and you will see a smaller user icon at the bottom.
  5. If your face is recognized it will changed to unlock icon. Swipe and it will unlock

Just saw you were running lollipop. Give the above awnser a shot.

You need to reinstall a Gapps package. That isn't the pico or nano Gapps chart Step 1: Here is a link you might want Download gapps kitkat

Step 2: Reboot your phone into the custom recovery (which should already be installed).

Step 3: Press install from sdcard and locate the zip.

Step 4: Wait for it to install and then reboot the device. And once on it should appear...

If you can't overwrite the Gapps via this method the easiest way to get face unlock would be to get the apk somehow...
