    Just wondering if anyone turned off face id and is using just the pin code on their iphone x? I may be paranoid about the face id and the long term effects. Just want to get some thoughts on how just using the pin code is.

    Thanks

    Nothing wrong with it. It just means you are either typing the pin every time you unlock or you are allowing your phone to remain unlocked for whatever you set the timer, and therefore are less secure that way. If it works for you it shouldn't matter what anyone else things. You aren't any less secure than anyone else is (we all also have passwords as a fallback).
