(KGTV) - Is a company now printing your face on a coronavirus mask so you can still unlock your phone using facial recognition?

No.

A San Francisco artist created the masks as a joke and it went viral.

She even set up a website that now has 1,200 people on a wait list to buy the masks.

But she has no set plans to make them, and experts say they wouldn't work anyway on most phones.
