This 10-year-old unlocked his mom's iPhone X using Face ID

The iPhone X doesn’t actually need Face ID for Animoji apparently

Now as you can see in the video, both mom and son do share some similarities in their facial features, and not only was the kid successful on the first try, but he managed to get in multiple times afterwards. He also unlocked his dad's phone too. But in a shocker, a 10-year-old accidentally unlocked his mother's iPhone using his face which was not even registered in the phone.

In another case, she reregistered a third time in dimmer lighting to replicate her initial registration, and then, her son was able to unlock the phone again. Some security researchers have already claimed to have fooled Face ID with 3D-printed masks. However, she made a decision to further test things by registering all over again under indoor night-time lighting, similar to the first time. We were sitting down in our bedroom and were just done setting up the Face IDs, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X. Right away my wife declared that he was not going to access her phone.

Although Apple says Face ID is more secure than Touch ID, this raises questions about the possibility of false positives not only happening with twins and siblings around the same age, but with people of different sexes and significantly different ages.

While cases like this one might not be that common, it seems family members with similar facial structure could circumvent the privacy of their loved ones by fooling the Face ID tech. As their distinct facial features may not have fully developed, so they might unlock your phone easily. According to the reports the screens of the iPhone X were being unresponsive and inaccurate whenever the weather was cold and this required users to lock and unlock the phone in order to use it. Lets take a Look at the Mask! To produce a model of the face, 3D printing was employed while other parts of the face such as eyes were 2D images. Meanwhile, there's also some "special processing done on the cheeks and around the face" where there are large areas of skin, and the nose is created from silicone. The Mask is being sold at $150!

"These are actual masks used by the engineering team to train the neutral network to protect against them in Face ID", said Schiller while standing below an image of the masks.
