How to set up Face ID on iPhone X

We all love Touch ID, but we have to admit: Face ID is even more discreet and easier to use in every way. It gives you access to your phone after you just look at the screen. With Touch ID, you had to dodge in every possible way by turning your finger correctly; now you just need to turn your face to your smartphone.


Face ID is an advanced identification system that uses an infrared scanner, point projector and camera. She creates a complex 3D model of your face during customization. This data is stored securely on your device. Due to the fact that the constructed model is three-dimensional, the system cannot be fooled with a photograph, a portrait, or even a specially made mask.
