How to Manage Face ID Access for Specific Apps on iPhone X

No longer want a third-party app to use Face ID? Fret not, you can choose to stop apps from having the access to Face ID on your iPhone X with ease. Jump over to discover how it's done the quick way!

To prevent unauthorized access to some of my favorite apps, I use Face ID for instant authentication on iPhone X. But due to security concerns or prevent myself from accidentally opening certain apps like the one I use to manage tax, I remove app’s access to the facial recognition technology. Luckily; iOS makes it pretty simple to manage Face ID access for individual apps on iPhone X.

Do you belong to the same school of thought as me? If yes, you would like to have complete control over apps’ access to Face ID on your iPhone.
