IPhone X Face ID security feature hacked! Little boy unlocks phone

However, the company explicitly admitted that the chances of breaking Face ID security increase with siblings, twins, and children under the age of 13, by publishing a security white paper. The interesting part is that the phone's security was set up by her Face ID. But a new video, featuring a Mom-son duo, shows the facial recognition tech is more vulnerable than it appears.

In yet another blow to the much-hyped Face ID security of Apple's iPhone X, a 10-year-old boy with hardly any effort managed to unlock his mother's iPhone X. As can be seen in the video below, Ammar can reliably unlock his mother's iPhone X, so it wasn't just a one-off fluke.

Lets take a look at this $150 mask that beat Face ID on the iPhone X. So if you really think, it is just the Identical Twin that can do it, then you must be mistaking.

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.

According to Apple, the probability of a random person unlocking an iPhone X with Face ID is approximately 1 in 1,000,000, compared to 1 in 50,000 for Touch ID. "His face is smaller than my wife's face, and the geometry of their faces don't match, at least to human eyes", writes Malik, who works as a director of technology operations at Taskstream.

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. This put an end to Ammar's Face ID hacks. However, Malik claims this wasn't the case with his wife and son, and no-one entered the passcode after Face ID rejected a scan, Wired reports. It was not for this objective that Apple designed and integrated this feature in their latest iPhone X, which is also the USP of this device apart from full screen display and other incredible features.

And that's it, easy access to the iPhone X with no fancy mask required.
