Turns out Apple's facial recognition technology may not be as secure as the company stated upon it's release. In other words... delete those nudes
Cybersecurity researchers in Vietnam have said that they have been able to fool Apple’s facial recognition feature by using a mask that costs $150.
Cybersecurity firm Bkav created a 3D-printed mask that uses makeup, silicone, and 2D images to trick the iPhone X’s software into thinking the disguise is the actual user. The mask has some “special processing done on the cheeks and around the face” to make it appear like a human. Sorta. The skin and nose are created from silicone.
The mask was able to trick Apple’s depth mapping. This comes despite Apple saying that the Face ID resists deception and “defends against attempts to unlock your phone with photos or masks.”
