The company claims that because it understands how Apple uses AI-it knows that AI only needs half a face for recognition, for example-Bkav was able to do it in a week and a half with a mask it says only cost them $150.

Facial recognition is the next iteration of biometric identification. The cybersecurity firm did stress that "billionaires, leaders of major corporations, nation leaders and agents like FBI" need to be aware of the problem.

"It means the recognition mechanism is not as strict as you think, Apple seems to rely too much on Face ID's AI". Wired also reported on the Bkav hack, comparing its own efforts against what we can glean from the video.

It only acknowledged that when Face ID was set up on the fooled device, "it learns from human face, just like normal".

This tricked the supposedly most advanced feature in the iPhone X. And allowed the people to unlock the phone without the need of the owner's face. "[Apple engineering teams] have even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID", said Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller, at the iPhone X launch event.

An attendee uses the Face ID function on the new iPhone X during a presentation for the media in Beijing, China October 31, 2017.

Apple claims the chances of a random stranger being able to unlock an iPhone X which does not belong to them are a million to one. 'It will not affect the truth that Apple Face ID is not an effective security measure'.

Bkav has been a long-term critic of facial recognition and alleges that Apple rushed out Face ID without properly securing it. The iPhone X, which became available November 3, has numerous other security functions that would make most such hacks impractical for all but the most dedicated criminals, and perhaps still unachievable, those experts said. Instead, they focused only on specific spots of the mask to trick the depth-mapping technology.

Other than that, the eyes were represented with printed 2D images, with a little extra special processing done on the cheeks and other areas of the face where there are large areas of skin. Face ID is even attention-aware. The task required $150 in materials, but more importantly the subject's full cooperation to take detailed 3-D facial scans. FaceTec, a San Diego based software start-up, has also demonstrated that if iPhone X users fall asleep, then their faces can still be used to unlock their handsets.

The researchers had an artist make the silicone nose for the mask by hand.
