When iPhone users first turn on the Siri service, they say certain phrases to teach AI what their voice is like. But Apple has begun work to expand this feature. Because the company discovered that some malicious individuals had tricked Siri into pretending to be a voice.
According to a patent patented by Apple, the company is working on a Siri feature that will learn to ignore the voice of a fraudster.
Siri improves security for Apple devices
Siri will soon use the phone’s accelerometer to detect deceptive sounds, according to Apple’s new patent. In this way, when the user gives the “Hey Siri!” command, the AI will determine whether this sound belongs to the device owner. He’ll automatically detect the people who mimic his voice.
Siri features are automatically restricted when your smartphone is locked. Therefore, as long as the device is locked, it is highly unlikely that a fraudster will harm you in this way. But when it’s not locked; or other possible dangers, it is still worth taking additional security measures.
Apple is more focused on AirPod devices for this patent. But if the expected innovation is accepted, it will be implemented on iPhone, iPad, HomePod mini, and many more devices.
On the other hand, the company may be on the path to giving up this patent completely in the future. Because there are many features that Apple has patented so far. Whether the feature will come to life will be known in the future.
