iPhone X Users Cannot Use Face Recognition for Family Purchases

Biometrics facial recognition is being widely used across several sectors, especially the retail sector to ease customer purchases. Such sensors allow for convenient identification, placement of orders, and transactions without the need for an external identity proof or without the need for cash or cards. Rising digitalization and financial establishments are concentrating on biometric alternatives for secure and better operations, as per biometric sensors market report published by Coherent Market Insights.

iPhone users benefit from the app called ‘Ask to Buy’, which is an iOS feature that enables parents to control what their children are buying using their phone. This application is useful, as there have been several instances where children have racked up hundreds of dollars on purchases by accident.

For the purchases intended by children, parents are required to make an approval, confirming that the items are eligible for further purchase.

iPhone X owners have discovered that they are unable to use Face ID to approve family purchases. This has created a stir on Apple’s forums, as users complaint that they cannot figure out how to activate the facial recognition feature to requests, and have to enter their password manually.

Ars Technica says that users could approve request with Touch ID, however, this is no longer the case since the release of the iPhone X. Users now are required to manually enter their Apple ID to approve the purchase. The feature can be used to authenticate a user to make purchases, Apple’s support page for the feature does not mention Face ID. However, given that the facial recognition system can be fooled by children, it might be a good thing, especially if children attempt to load up a new gadget during the holidays.
