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

Watch a 10-year-old unlocking his mother's Apple iPhone X using his face
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.
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. 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.
We've reached out to Apple for comment and will update with a response. But in this case, both the parents are clearly saying that no one ever entered the iPhone X's passcode which means the TrueDepth camera hasn't captured any improvements in regards to Face ID.
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!
Vietnamese cybersecurity firm Bkav, claims it's been able to bypass the iPhone X's Face ID feature using a mask. 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! For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.
