How Secure Is iPhone X's New Face ID Tech?

The new iPhone X can be unlocked with your face. But how secure is the technology? The chances of someone else unlocking your iPhone are one in a million with Face ID, Apple's SVP of marketing, Phil Schiller, said at a Tuesday event. With Touch ID there is a one in 50,000 chance it will be opened with the wrong fingerprint. Apple did not disclose where these figures are from.
