But even so, people are surprised at just how quickly Apple's hi-tech new Face ID for iPhone X seems to have been "pwned" - with researchers able to get through the facial scan used to ID owners. However, recently a Vietnamese security firm said that it successfully managed to thwart the Face ID using a mask. This - again, according to Apple - makes Face ID significantly more secure than the fingerprint-based Touch ID system it replaces, which had odds of being unlocked by a stranger of 50,000 to one. Face ID is said to have an error rate of just one in one million.
The claims should be taken with a few grains of salt, with multiple implausibilities prompting concern among journalists who themselves took more elaborate measures in their own attempts to spoof Face ID; Wired, for example, spent thousands of dollars on custom special effects masks, and still failed to fool the system. But the introduction of the brand new iPhone X, and it's facial recognition lock, has come with some controversy.

But what if we are not looking for a random person, but actually try and replicate a particular face and try to break into their iPhone X? The relatively cheap mask apparently can bypass the handset's infrared sensors and mapping technology which needs to connect 30,000 dots on the user's face to confirm his identity.
