Huawei says it can do better than Apple's Face ID

Security firm Bkav: Face ID not secure enough for business transactions

Calling their new mask "the artificial twin", Bkav first predicted the vulnerability in Face ID's AI when the iPhone X was introduced in September. "There is absolutely no learning of Face ID with the new mask in this experiment". Once the features are enabled, the person on the video unlocks the iPhone X with their face to show it works. Also, the security firm used the same technology that Face ID uses which is printed infrared images for the eyes.

So the basic intention of making the videos is to seek the attention of the Apple fans and convince them what they can do with Face ID, and believe in Apple's idea of ditching the Touch ID.

And it's not only security researchers who have been able to fool Face ID. In its place we have Face ID, which allows the tenth anniversary iPhone to be unlocked with just a glance of someone's face. The experts used a 3D mask made of stone powder, which costs roughly USA $200, as well as glued 2D images of the eyes.

Also interesting is that the toggle for "Require Attention for Face ID" is switched on, thus showing that Bkav's 3D masks can fool Face ID even at its highest security setting.


As we enter the busy holiday shopping season, Apple on November 27 released four video advertisements on YouTube, promoting its flagship - the iPhone X, the company's most advanced and expensive smartphone so far.

One of such features is that the iPhone X does not bring the new notifications to the screen until it is sure that you are the owner of the iPhone and are attentive towards the phone.

"About 2 weeks ago", Bkav's blogpost reads in part, "we recommended that only very important people such as national leaders, large corporation leaders, billionaires, etc. should be cautious when using Face ID".

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. This feature is reportedly meant to prevent Face ID from being unlocked with a mask or photograph or when you are looking away from your phone.
