IPhone X Face ID security feature hacked! Little boy unlocks phone

Sharing the experience how the family, which resides at Staten Island is the southernmost of New York City, discovered a loop hole in iPhone X face ID unlock feature, said that their 10-year-old son was checking out one of the two iPhone X, one was of his father and other was of his mother but without knowing which one was of his father's phone and mother's phone. They then demonstrate both the mother unlocking her phone by looking at the screen, followed by her son doing the exact same thing. 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.

The "lesson" parents should perhaps take away from this is to register Face ID in a bright room to minimise the chances of this becoming an issue. A Wired report on the video notes that the son was able to do this upon picking up the phone for the first time.

Apple needs to address this situation because at the introduction, it says Face ID is more powerful than the Touch ID but the reverse might be the case!

According to Macrumors, the younger Malik was consistently able to unlock his mother's iPhone X without any failure.

Saudi Arabia to reopen Yemen's air and seaports within next 24 hours
We heard [from the Saudis] that Aden and Mukalla ports are now open - but this is not enough. However, Mr McGoldrick said there was "no indication" yet of the blockade being lifted.

And People has been testing it out the Face ID, if they will be able to crack it down using a different face. Unlike Touch ID where you can register multiple fingerprints, Face ID is only programmable with one face per device.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A lot of Identical Twin's once did it, it worked for some and Not for others. For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.

Mr Ngo Tuan Anh, the company's vice president of cybersecurity, said the team created the mask using a combination of "3D printing with make-up and 2D images" to dupe the facial recognition system. A video produced by the security firm Bkav shows Face ID being hacked by a mask.
