For those that use 3D Touch to reply to iMessages, texts, What's App messages, etc from the lock-screen without using TouchID or FaceID? Do you feel that you're having a slightly more riskier experience because technically anyone could 3D Touch your notification and reply to it?

What about having the ability to toggle Wi-Fi and Airplane mode via control center w/o leaving the lock screen or logging into your iPhone? Does Find my iPhone have the option to change Wi-Fi and Airplane mode settings remotely via a laptop or another device?

3D Touch works seamlessly with Touch ID and Face ID. Why’d anyone turn it off?! I’ve been using it since when it got launched.

I meant to ask if you 3D Touch messages on the lock screen, aren't you exposing yourself to risk if you don't use TouchID or FaceID to unlock the device and then reply to a text message? I have seen where FaceID could hide the message content from others that do not have access to the device.
 

now i see it

If you're worried about security, all notifications should be disabled on the lock screen so nothing can pop up. Getting notifications on the lock screen is just asking for trouble if you lose your phone.
