New Era of a Completely Controlled World.
Using your face to unlock your phone with biometric technology is the only option for the new iPhone X.
The iPhone’s Face ID works in the dark, and can recognize when a face is covered.
According to Mac Rumors:
Face ID is enabled through a TrueDepth front-facing camera on the iPhone X, which has multiple components. A Dot Projector projects more than 30,000 invisible dots onto your face to map its structure.
The dot map is then read by an infrared camera and the structure of your face is relayed to the A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone X and transformed into a mathematical model. The A11 chip then compares your facial structure to the facial scan stored in the iPhone X during the setup process.
Face ID was considered to be a “failure,” with many mainstream articles surprisingly going against it. Parts of the US government took the opportunity to pretend as if they’re concerned about the surveillance potential of the iPhone, as if they didn’t try and force Apple to unlock iPhones in the past.
Apple had to answer to the US Senate recently about the technology.
In 2016, it was reported that the US tried to force Apple to unlock “about a dozen” iPhones, in addition to the San Bernardino shooter’s phone. The media coverage of the San Bernardino cellphone was probably to create an illusion that the federal government has trouble accessing the content of people’s phones.
In 2017, it would be wise for everyone to cover their microphones and cameras at all times, and obviously opt out of this Face ID system. Who knows what data is retained by what federal agencies, or intelligence agencies, in the US and across the world.
Welcome to the era of everything being connected: there are some precautions people will need to take.
It appears an agenda is underway to centralize power, by changing the infrastructure of society and replacing it with technologies that take away power from the average people: microchips, Face ID, and more are coming.
