If you watched today’s Apple event, you know that the company is releasing the new iPhone X.
And among the phone’s new features is one that allows you to unlock your iPhone with facial recognition.
Basically, you just look at your phone and the camera reads your face and unlocks the phone without the need for a passcode (or fingerprint).
This prompted the internet to respond with memes of Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, who has the ability to take the faces of people she’s killed. Since she can take complete form of them, including mimicking their voices, people noted that the facial recognition technology would probably do little to stop her.
Pretty much everyone had the same idea:
Oh man, Arya’s working at Apple now. #appleevent pic.twitter.com/npW7p6z4Qc

It’s only natural; after all, the latest Game of Thrones season ~just~ ended.
Apple: Now you will unlock your iPhone 8 with your face so no one else can unlock it!

Thankfully, it’s doubtful any iPhone buyers will have to worry about Arya Stark trying to break into their phones.
