Fear of violating the Face ID feature on the new iPhone X user privacy

Concerns about Apple’s new iPhone X violation of user privacy began after the phone was officially detected because the new device has a Face ID feature that allows the user to unlock the phone through facial features.

The American Recode website reported yesterday evening that Sen. Al Franken is pressuring Apple to detail its privacy and security safeguards for embedded biometric data within the new iPhone.

Franken’s concern is that Apple can use the so-called fingerprint it collects through Face ID to take advantage of other sectors of its business, sell it to third parties for surveillance purposes, and can receive applications from security agencies to access the face recognition system.
