However, this video is the big evidence that Face ID isn't 100 percent safe and can be fooled by a 10-year-old.
The family posted a video of the facial-recognition feat Tuesday on YouTube.
Sana Sherwani tried registering her face once again after a few hours in the same indoor lighting conditions in which she set up her iPhone X security the first time, but it did not really help as her son was able to still access the phone with his face.
More importantly, imagine the privacy implications if Ammar was the one with the phone, and he was six or seven years older than he is now; no teenager wants their parent (s) to be able to access their smartphone at will.
After the mother reregistered her face under different lighting, her son was no longer able to unlock her phone.
The Video shows the Mother locking the phone and then unlocking with her face, passes it to her son, Mark who is 10 year old, in less than a second, the phone actually does the same.
This isn't the first time Face ID has been fooled.
According to the Wired, the 10-year-old kid did not just unlocked his mother's phone, but after discovering that he was able to breach phone's security on his mother's phone, he tried hands on another iPhone X, which was of his father, and succeeded there too. Unlike Touch ID where you can register multiple fingerprints, Face ID is only programmable with one face per device. Now it looks like there's another easy scenario and parents might want to take note before getting an iPhone X. But it would be troublesome if that 1 person is living in the vicinity of the iPhone X user.
In Making, it is crafted through a combination of 3D printing, makeup, and 2D images. The Mask is being sold at $150!
"These are actual masks used by the engineering team to train the neutral network to protect against them in Face ID", said Schiller while standing below an image of the masks. For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.
