FaceID can be tricked – unlocking the face mask due to a vulnerability

Last week I saw this news and let some time pass to see if it is real or not. And it is, and Apple came up with a useless answer. You can trick FaceID into unlocking the phone with the face mask.

All you have to do is wear the mask partially during the face registration process. You can find the whole process on Reddit and see step by step how to proceed. Basically, you register your face with a mask partially placed on your face and in several areas.

It is clearly a vulnerability and Apple knows this, but officials have not come up with a concrete answer. I’m going to try this method too and come back with an update here if it worked or not. I’m very curious.
