iPhone X's Face ID Unlocked Using A Mask

Apple iPhone X's Face ID was Hacked (Unlocked) Using 3D-Printed Mask, and hackers have claimed to successfully hack Apple's Face ID technology with a mask that costs less than $150.

Apple's "ultra-secure" Face ID security for the iPhone X is not as secure as the company claimed during its launch event in September.

The bad news is that researchers from a Vietnamese Cyber Security firm Bkav were able to unlock the iPhone X using a mask.

Researchers have recreated the owner's face through a combination of 3D printed mask, makeup, 2D images and a nose created from silicone.

The researchers have published a proof-of-concept video, showing the iPhone being unlocked using the mask in just one go.

Which means the recognition mechanism is not as strict as you think.

Creating such a mask to unlock someone's iPhone is a time-consuming process and it is not possible to hack into a random person's iPhone.

However, if you prefer privacy and security over convenience, I highly recommend you to use a passcode instead of fingerprint or Face ID to unlock your phone.
