IPhone X users complaint FaceID getting slower with time

Apple iPhone X FaceID crack attempts; do they work?

But Bkav has demoed the first successful one, falsifying Apple's claim that a mask can't be used to spoof Face ID. "Country leaders, leaders of major corporations.are the ones that need to know about the issue, because their devices are worth illegal unlock attempts".

Apple said that its Face ID will continually learn by constantly taking selfies of its owner to create a very detailed profile. The company says its recipe combines a handmade silicon nose that the company commissioned - it required unspecified tweaking before working - plus printouts from a 3D printer as well as two-dimensional printouts and handmade artwork, especially for the skin. Face ID was configured with a real person's face and that the mask was able to fool it.

At the iPhone X launch event, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller had said, "Apple engineering teams have even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against attempts to beat Face ID".

But BKAV said that it "applied the strict rule of "absolutely no passcode" when crafting the mask", which would mean that the mask fooled Face ID in less than five attempts.

With the advent of the iPhone X, Apple introduced its disruptive FaceID technology that identifies user's face to unlock the device, replacing the TouchID. However many have raised concerns as to how safe is Apple's face ID?

Face ID is still proving to be more secure than some of the facial recognition options in Android, which have been fooled with just photos in the past. We use 2D printing for other parts (similar to how we tricked Face Recognition nine years ago).

So if you're carrying state secrets or nuclear launch codes in the Notes app of your iPhone X, maybe stick to biometric fingerprint scanning. "If convenience is more important, Face ID may be your choice". The mask is claimed to have cost around $150 to make, which seems cheap when you consider the effort and vast resources Apple put into developing the $999 iPhone X and its Face ID system. At the same time, Bkav isn't a totally random name in security research: the company published a report on weaknesses in Asus, Lenovo and Toshiba facial recognition tech back in 2009, so it's clearly been thinking about this kind of stuff.

Bkav's custom mask is a mix of 3D printing with special processing done around cheeks and around the face. It only took Vietnam-based cybersecurity experts from Bkav a few days to figure out the vulnerabilities of the authentication mechanism and create an extremely creepy mold of a hacker's face.
