After that, two people with a similar physiognomy managed to trick the same system within seconds.
The latest proof that Face ID can be tricked comes from a group of security experts from Bkav
These guys have managed to create a mask capable of cheating the Face ID system through a 3D printing technology which involves a series of special materials.
Although the mask is 3D, some of the elements, such as the eyes are actually 2D
Finally, the demonstration in the video below is an incontestable one, although it is quite difficult to say whether or not you should worry about the fact this trick is actually working.
The total investment in this trick required $150 in materials, plus the cost of the 3D printer used to produce the mask.
