10-year-old boy unlocks mom's Apple iPhone X using Face ID

This 10-year-old child can fool Face ID of her mother's iPhone X

In Less than a week after receiving the iPhone X on the 5th of November, they were able to byPass the Face ID! But a new video, featuring a Mom-son duo, shows the facial recognition tech is more vulnerable than it appears.

A family from Staten Island, New York posted a YouTube video showing a 10-year-old boy unlocking his mom's new iPhone X with Face ID.

Attaullah Malik, Ammar's father, said in a LinkedIn direct message to CNET that his son's face can not always unlock his mother's phone. It was proven earlier that it can be unlocked easily by an identical twin.

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.

Apple says the probability that a random person in the population could look at your iPhone X and unlock it is approximately 1 in 1,000,000; however, the company warns that the statistical probability is different for twins and siblings that have similar features and among children under the age of 13, because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed. His face is smaller than my wife's face and the geometry of their faces don't match, at least to human eyes. So the question is, is this a "flaw" with Face ID and on Apple's part? This put an end to Ammar's Face ID hacks.

On this matter, Apple said that kids under 13 have a better chance of fooling the Face ID due to their underdeveloped distinct facial features. Apple assured users at the iPhone X launch that Face ID can differentiate masks and real human faces.

Although family members can be an exception in case of protecting the iPhone X using Face ID, a group of Vietnamese researchers recently claimed that they had fooled the same authentication system using a composite 3D-printed mask.
