@demonshreder Uh, Face ID is all on-device, it never gets sent to Apple (or anywhere else). Only reason I'd feel comfortable using it. (:

apple.com/business/site/docs/i, page 12:

“Face ID data, including mathematical representations of your face, is encrypted and available only to the Secure Enclave. This data never leaves the device. It isn’t sent to Apple, nor is it included in device backups.“

@SilverWolf Yeah, I was trying to be funny.

Now that you mention it, we can't trust Apple with their secure enclave just like we can't trust Whatsapp for their End-to-End encryption.

The code isn't available for public scrutiny and verification. Apple hasn't shown visible signs of using user private data so it would seem trust-worthy but why bother if we can't verify it.

Note: If I am mistaken and Apple has undergone public scrutiny for this, please do let me know.
