Does Apple's Face ID Difference Between Twin Brothers? Maybe not

The Face ID that Apple has included in the iPhone X could be one of the most revealing biometric identification technologies In recent years, however, the most purists of technology can still think that we are quite happy with the way in which fingerprint readers work and perhaps it is time to put a little brake on that type of innovations.

Anyway Apple promised us in the presentation that the Face ID was so precise and sure that it would be able to differentiate even between twin brothers but ... was this true? Let's see how Face ID behaves when unlocking the terminal using two twin brothers.

Although it is true that we have been able to verify that Face ID is capable of recognizing you with numerous accessories on the head such as hats, sunglasses and other types of derivatives, which leaves us a good sign of the hard work that Apple has put behind it. In Reddit, the cradle of information lately, two twin brothers have uploaded a video testing the Face ID that we leave you in THIS LINK so you can see it with your own eyes, and it seems that the iPhone X and its Face ID are not as accurate as they had promised.

Between 46 and 57 seconds we observe how Face ID refuses to unlock when the twin brother removes his glasses, but as soon as he puts them on, it easily unlocks between both users, we imagine because having the glasses in the middle uses fewer confirmation points to determine which is the user. Apparently the Face ID is not as safe as it seems, at least between twin brothers ... can you trust your brother?

    Before publishing the news you should inform yourself well. If you read the comments on reddit, you will see that the author explains how he manages to do it. It is not a failure in the recognition of Face ID, but about how Face ID learns from the changes in your face.
    I think you should update the news to avoid confusion.
