Here’s How to Use Face ID to Unlock Apps on Your iPhone
Unlock your favorite iPhone apps faster than ever by enabling Face ID to work with them.
If your iPhone supports Face ID, you’re probably already familiar with using it to unlock your device. However, your iPhone itself isn’t the only thing you can unlock with Face ID. Certain apps also support this feature and allow you to unlock them with Face ID.
If you want to check out what iPhone apps can use Face ID, you’re in the right place. We’ll also show you how to control which apps can and can’t use this feature on your iPhone.
How to Enable Face ID for Different Apps
The first thing you need to do is ensure that Face ID is enabled on your phone. If you haven’t set it up, you can do so by going to Settings > Face ID & Passcode and selecting Set Up Face ID. Once this is done, you can use Face ID to unlock your phone.
If Face ID is not available, there are plenty of ways to fix this.
Now, we can move on to turning on Face ID for different iPhone apps. Some apps support this function, while others do not. Here’s how you can find out which apps are eligible and how you can turn on Face ID for each of them:
- Open Settings.
- Go to Face ID & Passcode and enter your passcode.
- Tap on Other Apps.
- You will see all the apps that have requested to use Face ID here. If the toggles are green, they can use Face ID to unlock that particular app. If the toggle is gray, tap on it to turn it green and enable Face ID for authentication.
You can’t manually add apps to the list. Only apps that have requested access to the feature will automatically show up here. If Other Apps isn’t present, then no apps have requested Face ID authentication.
Face ID Can Unlock More Than Just Your iPhone
Face ID is one of the most convenient features Apple offers, and you can use it to unlock several apps. You may want to enable it for ease of use and to ensure no one sees you typing out your passwords to unlock an app.
The process is quick, simple and easy and can be done with just a few taps in your Settings.
