Google Pixel 4 can easily unlock even with eyes closed, which means that the smartphone can simply bring it to the person sleeping owner, and the protection is removed. Similarly, access to the device can be obtained if the owner is unconscious.
In comments to this tweet one of your users attached photos with face recognition system settings on Pixel 4, where there is a switch that allows you to take into account whether the eyes are open.

In this case, I want to believe that the switch accounting eyes will be in the final version of the software.
