    Is it possible to log into your iPhone without using face id and without any password too.
    Some of us actually want this.
    In Android it is your choice if you want to risk your phone being protected or not.
    I'm trying to get rid of the Face ID as login which is easy but then I have to is enter the password instead.
    This is a XS Max.
    Thanks

    So it is impossible to delete your passcode? I mean, like all iPhones in the apple store. No passcode, no Face ID. I believe you can.

    It’s been said the phones in the Apple store run a “special” version of iOS.

    Sure, but if he gives up Apple Pay card, it is totally doable to not have a passcode on the iPhone.

    Wait, so by reading the responses, you mean to say that there's literally no way to not have a passcode on the iPhone X and over? That's dumb imo. I know a passcode is more secure but for older people they could forget the code, or for a child, if their parents don't want them to have a code on their phone.

    I know a keyed front door is more secure but for older people they could forget the key, or for a child, if their parents don't want them to have to carry a house key.

    You can turn passcode off in settings. Settings > Face ID & Passcode

    Ah, I thought so. I was just confused cause the comments made it sound like you couldn’t.

    I believe some people tend to interpret Apple's heavy pushing for passcodes and Touch/Face ID as a mandatory thing - particularly if they intend to use Apple Pay or Wallet.

    It's not. You can turn it all off - as shown above.

    It’s understandable if you want to use Apple Pay or the Wallet app. If someone were to get into those without your knowledge bad stuff could happen.

    My Xs has no login requirements because I didn't set them up. So when my phone wakes up I just tap then swipe up and I am in.

    Not only possible but I do it every day.

    So I guess the key is to just not set it up.
    Too bad you probably can't roll back those settings without restoring the phone.
    Probably...

    I don't think so. I started using a code, once I decided against it, I just basically turned it off. Can't speak to face ID but suspect it's the same.

    You can turn all those features off, you don't need to wipe/restore the phone. I do it daily.

    Do a face mask? Hh. I only know how to unlock the iPhone without a password, using iCloud, iTunes, tricking Siri, and the ultimate means - software.
