10-Year Old Unlocks His Mother's iPhone X Using Face ID

Lots of people look like their parents. But a new video, featuring a Mom-son duo, shows the facial recognition tech is more vulnerable than it appears.

According to Macrumors, the younger Malik was consistently able to unlock his mother's iPhone X without any failure. He also unlocked his dad's phone too. However according to them, it was derived partly from the fact of the sensors of Face ID merely checking certain part of the features on a face. A Wired report on the video notes that the son was able to do this upon picking up the phone for the first time.

The researchers asserted on November 10 they successfully bypassed the feature while released the POC video of the hack and concluded that unlike Apple's suggestion Face ID wasn't so secure.

We've heard of hackers and siblings tricking Face ID, but it turns out even a 10-year-old kid can potentially unlock their mother's iPhone X. That's exactly what happened with Ammar Malik and Sana Sherwani, raising the question of how reliable Apple's fancy biometric system actually is.

And People has been testing it out the Face ID, if they will be able to crack it down using a different face. It was proven earlier that it can be unlocked easily by an identical twin. Lets take a Look at the Mask!
