      Smartphones have boasted facial recognition for some time, but tests in the Netherlands suggest it still falls short of properly securing many devices.

      The tests, conducted by the country’s Consumers Association, identified 42 smartphones out of 110 tested could be unlocked with only a high-quality photograph of the phone’s owner.

      That, the organisation claimed on Thursday, represented 38 per cent of the devices it tested. Good news, Apple fans: all the iPhones tested by the Consumers Association – nine out of the 110 tested – passed.
