Apple’s Face ID authentication method is considered to be quite secure and sophisticated. At least, Android has nothing to oppose talking about security and that’s why Face ID was designed to authenticate payments.
Face ID is intended to be used by a single person and it’s not likely that the company is going to change this in the future. The recent email from Apple chief software engineer Craig Federighi has confirmed this.
Earlier reports showed how Face ID was fooled with a twin, a child of the device’s owner and even a mask. Another report of the Vietnamese company Bkav again showed how Face ID was fooled with a mask.
Face ID can be fooled by another person, especially if it’s your sibling. A video shows how this happened.

The new support document on Apple’s website shows how Face ID works and how to use it. Facial recognition will be first presented in iPhone X that will be launched in November.
iPhone X will launch later than previous models. Some sources say Apple cannot get in time to meet the demand, but The Wall Street Journal says that the reason is that Apple cannot get enough parts for TrueDepth camera.
