Malik demonstrates the unlocking in a clip above with his mother, Sana Sherwani - complete with a dab at the end.

Attaulah Malik, Ammar's father shared this story on Youtube and LinkedIn as well, where he acknowledged that his son's face can not always unlock his mother's phone, as reported by Wired. He had been forbidden to take in hand the smartphone's parents, but he could not resist the temptation and after a few minutes walked the Face ID feature that undertakes the identification of the owner of the gadget in the face.

The company's researchers said that the iPhone X's fingerprint sensor was the most secure biometric security feature. A Wired report on the video notes that the son was able to do this upon picking up the phone for the first time.

Until now, people might have thought that compromising Face ID on iPhone X is limited to their evil twin or some ugly 3D-printed mask.

In another case, she reregistered a third time in dimmer lighting to replicate her initial registration, and then, her son was able to unlock the phone again.

Applied Materials, Inc. (AMAT) Given "Buy" Rating at B. Riley
The forward P/E of Applied Materials, Inc.is at 15.39 signifying the uses of estimated net earnings over the next 12 months. Three investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and twenty-two have issued a buy rating to the stock.

This questions Apple's claims that Face ID is more secure than Touch ID since it is hard to believe that the son would be able to bypass Touch ID on his parents' other iPhones under any given conditions.

The probability that a random person the population could look at your iPhone X and unlock it using Face ID is approximately 1 in 1,000,000 (versus 1 in 50,000 for Touch ID).

And People has been testing it out the Face ID, if they will be able to crack it down using a different face. As their distinct facial features may not have fully developed, so they might unlock your phone easily. For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.

"These are actual masks used by the engineering team to train the neutral network to protect against them in Face ID", said Schiller while standing below an image of the masks.
