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

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

A recent video which has gone viral, shows a 10-year old boy unlocking his mother's iPhone X, hinting that family members who resemble similar features might be able to hack the system.

After the mother reregistered her face under different lighting, her son was no longer able to unlock her phone. 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.

However, this video is the big evidence that Face ID isn't 100 percent safe and can be fooled by a 10-year-old. However, she made a decision to further test things by registering all over again under indoor night-time lighting, similar to the first time.

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. As can be seen in the video below, Ammar can reliably unlock his mother's iPhone X, so it wasn't just a one-off fluke.

It's important to note that with Face ID, you can only set up one Face ID profile per iPhone - unless you delete one and add another.

If in case Face ID doesn't recognise a face, it presents a passcode input to users.

Where the Screen takes over all the front display, making it edge-to-edge design, there is No Space for the Touch ID, and according to Apple, if it doesn't stay on the Front then NO to the back, there and then we have the Face ID! 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. Apple assured users at the iPhone X launch that Face ID can differentiate masks and real human faces.

In Making, it is crafted through a combination of 3D printing, makeup, and 2D images.

Meanwhile, when the executive Phil Schiller was introducing the iPhone X, he publicly said Apple's engineers had worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against attempts to beat Face ID.
