One of the most famous Apple tools is Face ID, which was introduced in November 2017.

Face ID is a facial recognition system developed by Apple that allows users to seamlessly unlock their phones.

Face ID is Apple’s TrueDepth technology, which uses an infrared transmitter and over 30,000 points to identify a user’s face.

It does this by capturing all the curves and wrinkles of your face and then storing it as data to unlock your phone.

The technology is very secure – and when used in addition to a strong password, it can keep cybercriminals away from your private data.

However, as secure as Face ID is, threat actors can still find ways to bypass the security if they are persistent enough.

One way is to take advantage of the tool you grant access to from your lock screen.


It’s no surprise that iPhones offer users a lot of control flexibility.

An example of this is the ability to allow iPhone users to manage the available features without having to unlock their iPhone.

There are about 11 different features that you can access from your lock screen without Face ID.

If you have all enabled, your device may be less secure.

For example, someone could reply to a message with your locked iPhone, use Siri, or see the apps you’ve used recently.

You should disable these controls as well as others like USB connections.

To manage access to features, go to Settings > Face/Touch ID & Passcode > select the options under Allow Access When Locked.
