    Do they even test this stuff before releasing?

    You'd think others had learned from the Apple face recognition debacle

    PS. I don't believe in face recognition (at least its current version relying on 2D images), because I find the whole concept is inherently easy to fool using webcams and the like. You could work with 3D face models created with special devices connected to the computer, but it may not be good enough either.

    Article says this only works on Anniversary Update 1607. Creators Update 1703 and 1709 can't be fooled. Fearmongering for no reason. The lesson here is to make sure to update.
