There is no doubt that one of the most talked about sections in recent weeks, is the new security and authentication system included by Apple in its most advanced phone till to the date, we refer to the Face ID of the X iPhone. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Apple’s iPhone X user’s can’t use Face ID to validate family purchases.
iPhone X Users Can’t Use Face ID To Validate Family Purchases
Since the new iPhone X began to reach the world a few weeks ago, the truth is that the technological innovations that this advanced terminal has included, both internally and more aesthetically, have made rivers of ink circulate around the globe.
There is no doubt that one of the most talked about sections in recent weeks, is the new security and authentication system included by Apple in its most advanced phone till to the date, we refer to the Face ID of the X iPhone.
Well, now some of the users of the terminal are beginning to discover that this new authentication technology is valid to authorize a purchase made for ourselves, as it has already been mentioned on other occasions, however, we can not use it. when approving a purchase for our children, for example.
We say this because many owners of one of these devices have discovered that the function of facial authentication does not work for family purchases, that is, when a family member asks us to buy applications or music on their behalf, such and as we have done so far with the Touch ID on previous iPhone.
Not that it is a serious failure or anything like that, however many have asked the reason for this decision made by the signature of the tech giant Apple. This measure could well be due to a security decisiveness, or simply due to an error by the tech giant Apple itself.
Face ID does not allow third-party purchases
Some point out that all this could be due to certain practical reasons in order to avoid the possible misuse that some could make of Face ID. In fact, when the Cupertino company introduced this facial recognition on their phone, they were aware of the possibility that twins and other relatives of very similar appearance could deceive the detection system. Moreover, we have already seen a case in which a child was able to successfully unlock his father’s iPhone X due to the great similarity between them.
Therefore, we could conclude that this measure has been taken by the tech giant Apple because it probably does not want to risk having someone’s son go shopping because he looks a lot like his father, and although the possibilities are few, assumes that Face ID is a full-fledged security system.
With all this and many experts believe that there is still a time before facial recognition based on depth is reliable enough to be used in any situation, as we are counting.
