Security Firm Bypassed iPhone X Face ID With 3D Face Mask Model

Apple iPhone X has been a buzz since it was launched. The device which boast of so many features have been regular in the news and was even mocked by Samsung after the company released a video which they titled "Grow Up". Apple made headline when it launched the iPhone X with a Face ID Feature, a technology the company claimed to be so strong that not even a Hollywood-quality masks couldn’t fool it.

While this maybe one of the selling point on the new device, the smartphone boast of many great features and also comes with a price tag. Recently a security firm known as Bkav put the Apple iPhone X to a test and its now claiming that they have bypassed the iPhone X face ID. The company who stated that the Face ID is not an effective security measure, explained that they have used a popular 3D printer, nose, and skin made by a handmade artist and used 2D printing for other parts like eyes and a costs of about $150 to fool the Face ID Feature. 

Ngo Tuan Anh, Bkav’s Vice President of Cyber Security, said:
The mask is crafted by combining 3D printing with makeup and 2D images, besides some special processing on the cheeks and around the face, where there are large skin areas, to fool AI of Face ID.
The company stated that the reason for the experiment, was to prove that Apple iPhone X face ID feature was not an effective security measure. According to Bkav, biometric security, fingerprint sensor is the best.
