IPhone X Face ID Fooled with a $150 Mask

Face ID beaten by mask, not an effective security measure - Top News - Bkav Corporation

This $150 mask is made up of 2D images, a silicone nose, a specially processed area, and a 3D printed frame.

Bkav said in a blog post, 'Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure'. For one thing, the mask's eyes don't move, and therefore can't make eye contact to activate the device's "attention aware" feature - though it may be worth noting here that this feature can be deactivated. Several users have pointed out that the Face ID lock icon at the top doesn't open when the phone is facing the mask.

Still, Wired itself asserts that Bkav's history of successful spoofing of older facial recognition technologies "lends its demonstration some credence".

Bkav's claims come despite Apple's statement that the engineering team had collaborated with "professional mask makers and make-up artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID". Apple wrote in a white paper on Face ID that it is smart enough to know when it's looking at a mask.

Apple said when it introduced the Face ID in September that the probability of someone unlocking another person's device with the Face ID is approximately 1 in 1,000,000, but that number narrows among twins and siblings.

Mr Ngo then tries to unlock the iPhone X again, but this time with a mask in front. Apple insisted that the new biometric scanner is ultimately more convenient and very secure - there's a one in a million chance that there's a random person somewhere in the world who can unlock your phone with their face, Apple said.

Since the iPhone X went on sale on November 3 there have been numerous attempts to hack its Face ID system.

The firm is launching its own facial recognition technology named ZoOm Login which provides ultra-secure face authentication by matching the user via recognition algorithms and verifying 3D liveness via AI. A stylus called the "Apple Pencil" was also reported to be in progress and is expected to launch along with the new tablet. In about a year, the iPhone X will be able to do things it can't do right now.
