    Dear friend to setup Face Unlock feature on ICS device please follow the following procedure below:
    1.Go to Settings menu---------

    2.Go to Security and select Screen Lock

    3.Select Face Unlock

    4.Now you will be on about face unlock .Select Set it up

    5.Now you will be taken to screen like this just continue

    6.Then front facing camera will turn on and you will be able to see your face.Just ensure you are on well lit area.Now it will capture your face.

    7.Then you will be taken to above screen on completion of face recognition process.It may take 1 to 3 tries so have patience.
    Hit continue

    8.Then you will be presented with this screen
    It is important to setup a backup lock as whenever face unlock fails usually in dark areas this backup lock Pin or Pattern will help in unlocking your device.

    9.After you have completed the back up lock you will be presented with this screen
    You should be proud.Now you have configured the face unlock feature for your Android device.
    Hope it is in as detail as it could be.
