What Apps on My iPhone Are Using Face ID?

The Face ID on your iPhone 11 or other newer iPhone model provides a simple way to unlock the device.

But it can also be used to verify purchases, fill in passwords, and even authenticate logins for some of your other apps.

For example, if you have a banking or shopping app on your iPhone, then it’s possible that the app is configured to use Face ID, and that you can enable it as an additional security measure to sign into your account.

Enabling Face ID is typically an option that is available when you sign into the app and, by enabling it, can be used for future logins as well.
