How to protect your iPhone from illegal unlocking by Face ID

Yesterday it became known that the law enforcement authorities tried to unlock the iPhone X suspect using Face ID.

This is much easier than putting a finger. Just bring the smartphone to your face, and you already have full access to it.


But there is a way to protect yourself from illegally unlocking your smartphone using a face scanner. Make sure that the SOS function is enabled ( Settings -> Emergency call – SOS ).

You only need to do one thing: hold down the Volume + and the side button .

iPhone will enter SOS mode and automatically turn off Face ID. Log into the smartphone will be possible only with a passcode.

Devices with Touch ID can also be locked. To do this, press the Power button 5 times.
