    loving the X so far and especially Face ID but one curiosity is that reading these forums every now and again the Face ID symbol and animation appears on the screen as if I am being authenticated but I’m just browsing.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I have tried making sure I am not looking at my phone on an occasion when this happens to see what happens and it doesn’t seem to cause an issues but just curious as to why it happens.

    Do these websites you are browsing have accounts that you can sign into? Like if I go to facebook my FACE ID will log me in after scanning me, maybe that’s what those websites are doing, if not it could be a glitch maybe try restarting the phone and visiting those webpages and seeing if it occurs.

    I believe this is a bug. Face ID is scanning your face everytime it enters a website which has your iCloud Keychain passwords being used
