iPhone X will say hello with us. Bisexuals, are you ready buy new one? Do you like iPhone X? Will you spend $999 to buy an iPhone X? there is a new feature with iPhone X——Face ID. This feature is not a really new feature for phone. But it’s new for iPhone. This is the first time for Apple to add face ID on iPhone. This is a meaningful thing for Apple. However, is an exciting deal for users?
There are 4 problems I have to take care of, do you find them, bisexual friends. As bisexual, protecting privacy is very important for us. Will Face ID protect our privacy?
Does Face ID make it easier for the police to unlock my phone?
Like the Touch ID, Face ID raises the real question about forced unlocking. If you are detained by a police officer or kidnapped by a criminal, they will not be able to guess your password, but they can shake hands on the phone, aim at your face, and scan through face recognition. This is a major privacy concern, many users do not think about it, until what happened too late. But there is no indication that Face ID is worse in this respect than the Touch ID, but still raised questions about how the system will remain under stress.
A tricky question is whether you can use Face ID to unlock someone's phone once the system is enabled. On the stage, Schiller claimed that the system needed the user 's attention to function properly, such as "if your eyes closed, if not aligned, it will not unlock.
However, the speed of the process does indicate that the Face ID may shift the balance of the secondary device. As you can see in our own hands-on test, the iPhone X will refuse to unlock as long as the subject's eyes are closed - but as long as he opens his eyes, Face ID can be identified even if the camera is slightly off the face of the subject.
The benefits of involuntary login protection will depend on the details of the Face ID specific user interface, so as the iPhone X goes on, it will be another issue that needs attention.
As a bisexual who did not come out, I was afraid that someone else looked at my cell phone content, and there were too many secrets that could not be known to others, so I was worried about its safety and privacy.
My face data was leaked or stolen?
Apple has said that the company will not send face data to the cloud, which means that your face data will remain on the phone. Every sign shows that Apple is facing the same way as the Touch ID processing data, which is good news. In this system, Apple uses a registered fingerprint to create a hash version of the data and then store it on the phone's Secure Enclave security chip.
Assuming that Apple follows the same Face ID manual, it is very difficult to remove the data from the phone, and it is almost impossible to rebuild a face from it. Secure Enclave is the safest part of the phone and can even resist circuit-level analysis. This is not an absolute guarantee. Apple may always break through some sort of way they have not yet discussed, or hackers can make some incredible new breakthroughs. However, this looks safe compared to most of the information on the Internet's accessible devices.
Can we rest assured to buy iPhone X it? At least it seems safe, most worrying is that I download a bisexual dating app, or save a bisexual dating site on Safari, some people will open my phone when I am asleep or I do not know.
Will Face ID have racial bias?
Facial recognition systems have a long history of racial prejudice, mainly due to the lack of diversity in the database. The algorithm used to match faces will become better when recognizing more faces. As you might expect, most of the algorithms used in white face training are not so good for people who identify blacks, Chinese or Indians, which means that a particular group has a higher rate of error and the product is less effective. So, will Face ID have the same problem?
We know how to fix this problem if we want to. The question is whether Apple has done the necessary work. So far we have not enough information to say. Phil Schiller said on the stage that the Face ID team took over 1 billion images to train the algorithm, but that does not tell us how many people are part of the database, but what they look like. There are a lot of racial diversity in the stage video about the Face ID test, at least that Apple is aware of the problem, but we are not sure until we can test the system in a strict way.
When the Galaxy S8 was launched in March of this year, its facial recognition system is one of its main selling points, until the discovery may only be the face of the photo can get the phone can easily be swept to this defeat. But Apple's system is more complex, relying on dual cameras and a series of projection infrared points to detect the depth. Apple's marketing video shows the 3D mask used to test Face ID to prevent spoofing attacks, and the simple fact is that cameras with athletic ability should be able to find false faces more easily at work. After all, the iPhone X does not seem likely to be able to pass the photo test, but you will never know until you try it yourself.
Will Apple apply Face ID to anything other than unlocking?
This is the most interesting question, but also the most difficult to answer. Soon after, millions of people will be registered in Face ID, allowing Apple to control the powerful face recognition tool. In the current system, these data remain on the phone, but will always change. Hashing makes it difficult for anyone other than Apple to use the data, but there is no real restriction on the content they use, especially if they start storing information outside of a particular phone. On Twitter, privacy advocates are concerned that Face ID data is used for retail monitoring or attention tracking in ads. You can also imagine that as a pleasant product breakthrough next year, integrated into an Apple store or an Apple car, as a way of carrying a login, no matter who goes in.
For ordinary users, bisexual only concerned about our privacy do not be leaked, but also hope that the phone will not be easily unlocked. Our life is inherently a kind of privacy.
