How to take control of Face ID (with tools you may not know exist)




If you travel frequently and use an iPhone or iPad, then you simply must familiarize yourself with these two tips – they’ll make it much easier to secure your device and its contents when you are on the move.

In praise of Face ID

I’ve become very used to using Face ID. It’s seamless.

On the iPhone, I like that I can pay for groceries with a look and find it much easier to use in the dark than the Home button.

My iPad experience is similar, but I do get annoyed sometimes that I must raise the tablet slightly to get the face angle right – this isn’t always as intuitive as I would like.

All the same, given Apple’s claim that there is a 1 in 50,000 chance that someone else’s fingerprint will unlock your iPhone and a 1 in 1,000,000 chance that it will be unlocked by another person’s face, I’ll always opt for the highly secure choice.

But it’s not always the right idea.
