Hi,
I would like to know what happens with the security data when use my face to unlock my device.

- is the photo/security data local only
- is the photo/security data local only but accessible by MIUI or Google?
- is my photo/security data stored & uploaded to MIUI or Google?
- is my photo/security data being assigned to my MIUI account and/or Google Account?

Hopefully somebody had a answer.

It's stored locally in /data/user_de/0/com.android.systemui/files ("de" stands for Device Encrypted). I'm not aware of any uploading procedures to any parties, not Google and not Xioami. That's as far as I'm aware at least.
