As Apple iPhone announced its most impressive iPhone to date i.e. iPhone X, It’s secure full of new and latest features that you might be looking, but the most hyped feature is you can catalog your face with the iPhone X with which it can automatically detect your facial features and unlocks when you look at it.
But Cyber-security experts warned that facial recognition technology in new high-end iPhone X is more secure and authentic than other verification systems but it is still not perfect.
Tom Grissen, CEO of biometrics firm Daon, who has clients like USAA and MasterCard said;

“None of these systems are flawless. And you’ll see it with Apple. They can be defeated. Somebody will do that,”
In an interview with ‘Squawk Box’ he said, tech is toiling for perfection and all these systems are boosting security but they are not going to solve it.
On its big product launching event on Tuesday, Apple introduced the iPhone X’s new feature to unlock with facial recognition instead of a fingerprint or passcode. We have already seen this feature before in some Android devices such as ‘the Galaxy S8’ but Apple says its face detecting sensors uses 3-D imagery that is even more secure and perform more improbably, adding that even a professionally made mask of your face can’t deceive this new technology and is more secure than fingerprint locks.
Just after a day, Apple made public its new iPhone X — a device that its owner can unlock using facial recognition — Security experts are pressuring the tech giant to specify the privacy and security protection or safeguards it has in place for biometric data.
Still, Sen. Al Franken has a number of lingering unanswered questions and his concern didn’t keep him from writing a letter to Company’s CEO Tim Cook about their privacy and security. He expressed his encouragement by the steps that Apple states it has taken to implement the system responsibly, but he questioned that ‘whether the technology will perform equally well on different groups of people?’
He is also worried that:
“to benefit other sectors of its business, sell it to third parties for surveillance purposes, or receive law enforcement requests to access it facial recognition system — eventual uses that may not be contemplated by Apple customers,”
According to Grissen that the technology is well-liked and “Consumers love them and they enhance our security, if a consumer has a technology they don’t like, they won’t adopt it.” He added.
