Apple’s FaceID hacked using a pair of glasses, black tape

Researchers have found a way to bypass Apple’s FaceID system using a pair of glasses and putting black tape on the lenses. According to a ThreatPost report, the method takes advantage of the “liveness” detection feature, which essentially determines whether the biometric being captured is of an actual person and not a mask or a photograph.

 

 

Researchers from Tencent put a black tape on both lenses of a pair of glasses, and white tape inside the black tape to carry out the attack. The modified glasses, dubbed “X-glasses” can then simply be put on the victim’s eyes when they are sleeping to unlock their phone. The researchers were then able to successfully transfer money using mobile payment on the victim’s phone once it was unlocked.
