Hello,

Just wondering how to only use Face ID? Is there a possible way or hack to remove passcode but only use Face ID?

Wished they kept fingerprint ID, that and face would be a lot more secure than numbers.

Well, you can add your own alphanumeric passcode (instead of just numbers) to make it more secure than TouchID or FaceID. My passcode is 15 characters/numbers long. I still use FaceID obviously...but my passcode makes it impossible to crack.

Sounds like we might be hiding something.

You can not avoid setting up a pass code unless you want zero protection on your phone. The pass code is the backup for bother Touch ID and Face ID

FaceID can fail. For something as important as security, you always need a plan B that never fails
