The iPhone X revolutionized users with the launch of the face scanner, but not everything is as pretty as it is told. We have received information about the data storage of the iPhone X face scanner.
Apart from the error on the day of the presentation, when the facial scanner did not work, information arrives about the storage and dissemination of the data collected by each iPhone User's Face X.
The police have asked to deactivate the facial scanner
That's right, despite the hard work, on the part of Apple, to guarantee the security of all its products and processes, it is has escaped storing the user's face details.
An unprecedented error, in which the Police intervened and recommend deactivating facial recognition Since it is known that the data collected are stolen and can be used for commercial purposes. In other words, through facial recognition you can discover the emotions of users and use said information for the use of an application, advertisement, survey, etc..
According to Apple, the data will never leave the user's phone But now we know it has arrived at the hands of the developers. What happened? Well, Apple guarantees the security of its own products, but developers have access to certain TrueDepth data, which is the technology in charge of making the Face ID of the iPhone X work.
Users' face information is stored on the iOS developers' own servers. This is the storage of privileged information with which you can discover the emotions of the users, as I said before. It involves the collection of 52 movements of the user's entire face.
Apparently, what is intended is that each user has a high-quality image of their face to print in 3D. It is assumed that after this storage of information, there is no malicious intent.
Apple continues to work to preserve the security and privacy of its users. That is why the storage of the details of the users' faces in the facial recognition of the iPhone X, it's just a bump in your fight for safety.
What do you think of security in this type of functions such as facial scanning?
