The last time the security company Bkav unlocked an Iphone X with a mask had some doubts if the attention function was really turned on, so the preset feature that makes us have to watch our Iphone for Face ID will unlock the device.
But this time the mask is a bit more advanced, writes Macrumors. Again it's about a 3d-printed model of a face, made in stone powder. The "eyes" consist of two infrared 2d images that are attached to the model. With this, Bkay succeeds in unlocking an Iphone X.
However, a 3D printer, material for thousands of dollars, infrared images on the person's eyes and several hours of work to unlock an Iphone X is required in this way. In addition, this must be done within 48 hours, when Iphone requires a passcode after two days have passed. Face ID is probably probably enough for most people, but maybe people living under different types of threats, business leaders, politicians and security agents should think about using Face ID.
