Business Insider – Apple reportedly bought an Israeli startup that wants to replace passwords with selfies

20 February 2017
Apple’s latest reported acquisition could allow you to unlock your iPhone with a selfie.
According to Hebrew-language site Calcalist, the Californian technology company has acquired RealFace — an Israeli startup that builds facial recognition technology.
RealFace’s website is not currently online, but videos show off its product in action. It builds tech that aims to replace passwords or logins using facial recognition — letting you unlock your phone or an app with nothing but your face.
