No idea about the Kobo Arc.
But I've tried the facial recognition protection on Samsung Nexus.
Nice gimmick, but far from safe.
I've made a picture of myself on iPhone 4.
Samsung Nexus easily was tricked by that.
Of course, one has to have a picture of the owner. But then it's quite simple.
If, for whatever reason, facial recognition wouldn't work, additionally you still can define an additional protection, for example password or gesture.
