Good luck copying 3D sculpture of a face you can't just pick up from a device itself. You leave fingerprints all over the phone itself. If one would like to break into your phone it's easier to fool the fingerprint scanners given that keys (fingerprints) for it are literally next to it. With exception of Samsung's ultrasonic scanners that detect physical ridges of fingerprint which even if you have a fingerprint is much harder to fabricate a print because it has to physically be a relief and not just contrast difference between ridges and grooves as done by standard scanners. Yeah, we totally don't know what we're talking about :rolleyes:

                            GAMIRSFM, 24 Aug 2021The thing is, Apple expects you are at home all the time.No, Apple expects that you are not perpetually wearing a head covering. Or crazy, or paranoid.

                            Fingerprint sensors expect that you don't wear gloves, don't have damp hands, have a lot of patience to touch, touch again. That's why fingerprint sensors are cheap and that's why only a few phone makers can do secure Face ID, one of which is Apple.
