The iPhone X’s brand new Face ID recognition software has come under scrutiny as experts cautioned that the system might be used to compromise the user’s safety and privacy. … Nasir Memon, a professor of computer science and engineering at New York University [Tandon School of Engineering], warned that if someone was able to create a glove containing a MasterPrint in each finger, the suspect could very well gain access to 40 to 50 percent of iPhones within the allowable five tries before the device requires a personal identification number.
