Face ID tricked by mask, again

This time around the video clearly shows that both the "Require Attention for Face ID" and "Attention Aware Features" were turned on in the iPhone X used for testing. "There is absolutely no learning of Face ID with the new mask in this experiment". The company also claims that Face ID is less secure than Touch ID because images of a person can be taken from afar and used to create a mask to unlock the phone.

Now before any iPhone X users start panicking, it's worth noting that criminals using this technique would still need direct access to your phone; they can't simply go around waving masks in the vague hope of unlocking iPhones.

Apple stated this about its facial recognition technology, "Face ID matches against depth information, which isn't found in print or 2D digital photographs".

Ever since the iPhone X launched on November 3, people have been hard at work trying to fool Face ID.

Duke & Duchess of Cambridge attend Royal Variety Show following Oxford Street panic
This Friday, 24 November, Kate Middleton made an appearance very noticed at the Royal Variety Performance Show. The look was straight out of a fairytale and gave us some serious queen Elsa from Disney's Frozen vibes.

A couple of weeks ago we reported that Vietnamese cybersecurity firm Bkav fooled Face ID with a cheap mask, and now it's repeated the trick even more convincingly.

Since the unlocking could be performed so easily this time, Bkav has raised its warning level, suggesting that even ordinary business users should avoid using Face ID as a legitimate security feature. As soon as the iPhone X became available for sale, they immediately conducted experiments based on previous analysis to confirm the "foreseeable" weakness, and just as predicted, Face ID was defeated by the mask. This time, a new 3D-printed mask made from stone powder rather than paper tape is used, while the 2D-printed eyes are again present.

If that wasn't bad enough, Bkav claims its second edition mask is "very simple" to make and can be done without raising the iPhone X owner's suspicions. All in all, Bkav estimates the process runs around $200. This was a spec announcement to show that Huawei would eventually have an answer to Apple's 3D face detection, not something tangible you could buy in the near future.

We contacted Apple for comment, but knowing Cupertino's lot, it may be a while before we get a response.
