So my daughter can unlock my wife's XR with her face. Is this a problem? I thought this was supposed to be pretty secure.

You can't expect us to take your word for this. Show us a video where they each unlock the phone using FaceID. Then we can talk. And how do we know that your daughter didn't enter her face into the system as an alternate ID?

Your daughter probably recorded her face as the second Faceid user.... Check settings/Faceid & passcode and see how many faces are listed

There were several news about cases when brother/sister/kids could unlock the phone with FaceID, so not a bug. It's just not perfect yet.

p.s. If her face is not added to the system ofc.
