These siblings show that how easy it is to fool the face ID feature of iPhone X ,if you solely depend on this then a colossal disaster is waiting.
Info from Licensor:
"My friend Alex and I are technology enthusiasts. We decided to go check out the new iPhone X to try it out. Alex, his younger brother, and I went to purchase an iPhone X. Alex set his phone up with FaceID, whereas my phone had not been set up and was still at the 'Hello' screen. We went to the food court afterwards to take photos of our phones on the table for Instagram. After taking the photos, Alex's brother picked up Alex's phone to look at the build of it, and it unlocked. We thought Alex might have been too close or something as it had only been set up with his face. Alex took the phone back, unlocked it with his face, and it worked fine. He then locked the phone and gave it back to his brother, who then picked it up and it unlocked with his face also. Alex is 20, and his brother is 16. They're not twins. Upon realizing that Alex's phone unlocked with his brother's face, we were dumbfounded. I grabbed my old phone and recorded a video of it to hopefully bring attention to the issue, so that Apple could fix it with software updates. After uploading the initial video, we went back to Apple and asked them about it. They provided an explanation and a potential remedy."

ANCHOR CHANCE SEALES
Google is in the midst of planning an app that would identify a person’s face in a photo, then pull their personal information--like Facebook Flickr, or even a cell phone number.
CNN reports Google has had the technology to do this for years--but is still hesitant about privacy issues. It’s not just some quote “start-up” company with nothing to lose... (Video: Google)
“Google also is concerned about the legal implications of facial recognition. Even during trials among its own employees, Google has taken steps to ensure testers have explicitly agreed on record to try out the service.”
...and while users have to give Google permission before it can pull such info-- Digital Quest points out that once agreement is given... it could be dangerous.
“Imagine a guy takes a picture of a woman in a bar and then he knows her address just because somewhere on the Web there is an association of her address with her photo.”
And while the latest buzz is on Google’s most recent announcement--it seems it’s already been done. As Seen on Phone--a website dedicated to mobile news-- says a demo-Android app called Viewdle, may have just beat Google to the punch.
“What you’re seeing here is a concept of facial recognition working as the video is being played, so you see the boxes are face to text, the name is a face-recognition, then we take that name, hook it up to a social network and are able to pull down status updates as they’re happening. As you see in the video, the idea is that our algorithms are fast enough to run 100% local to the device.”
Other face recognition technologies are being implemented in China right now. NTDTV explains the device can recognize up to 1400 faces and costs around $720.
“This is made possible by a device called the "Hanvon Face ID" that was developed in China. The device uses infer-red technology to scan a 3D image of a person's face, these images are then stored on the device's internal chip, so it doesn't have to be connected to an external server.”
So...is Google too worried about privacy issues--or is this technology scary? Tell us in our comments section.
