Someone claims to have broken iPhone X's Face ID security already

New To The iPad These Tips Will Assist You

A Vietnamese firm claims to have created a mask which can beat Apple's face ID system into unlocking the iPhone X. The firm called Bkav created an elaborate mask through 2D and 3D configuration using a printer. The technology didn't even fall for well-lit photographs or other faces that had similar features.

The company's researchers said that the iPhone X's fingerprint sensor was the most secure biometric security feature.

Of course, such an elaborate hack is unlikely to cause sleepless nights for many iPhone X owners, but Bkav believes there are certain users who should be anxious about their findings.

"Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure".

When Russian's Ministry of Defense first tweeted out the " evidence ", they did so in multiple languages, but not all of those are available any longer.

Bkav believes Apple is relying too much on the FaceID's AI and the $150 can be used to dig personal secrets from public figures, political leaders, billionaires etc. "We were able to trick Apple's AI...because we understood how their AI worked and how to bypass it".

Did iPhone X's Face ID already get tricked? Face ID is said to have an error rate of just one in one million. Bkav's method is yet to be confirmed by other security researchers. However, we knew about this "learning", thus, to give a more persuasive result, we applied the strict rule of "absolutely no passcode" when crafting the mask.

Face ID uses artificial intelligence to distinguish real faces from images, videos or masks, but it "learns" a face over time. Exploitation is hard for normal users, but simple for professional ones, ' they added. As mentioned at the time, Apple assured those interested that Face ID can't be fooled by photos or masks and is so secure that it is enabled to authorise Apple Pay.

Bkav has gone to extreme lengths to unlock the iPhone X and while £115 is just a fraction of the £1,000 price tag, it seems unlikely that criminals are going to recreate each owners' faces before nicking their gadgets. And Face ID was not able to distinguish between the two. The company also claims that the FaceID is foolproof and can't be hacked using a two-dimensional picture of the user to unlock the phone.
