How to Activate Face ID for Password AutoFill

In this guide, I will show you how to enable Face ID for Password AutoFill on your iPhone. Once enabled, you can use Face ID to autofill saved usernames and passwords for websites in Safari and apps that support Password AutoFill. Here is a list of iPhones that support Face ID.

Before you get started, make sure that your face is clean and unobstructed. Remove glasses, hats, or scarves if you wear them regularly.

Steps to Activate Face ID for Password AutoFill

Below are the steps on how to enable Face ID for Password AutoFill on your iPhone:

  • STEP #1: Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone. If you have a passcode set up on your device, you’ll need to enter it to access the settings.
  • STEP #2 In the “Settings” app, scroll down and go to “Face ID & Passcode” and click on “Set Up Face ID” in the Face ID & Passcode settings.
  • STEP #3: Next, hold your iPhone in portrait orientation and position your face within the on-screen frame. Make sure to move your face around to capture it from various angles.
  • STEP #4: The iPhone will instruct you to gently move your head in a circle. This helps the device create a detailed 3D map of your face. Continue until the first scan is complete.
  • STEP #5: After the first scan is complete, it will ask you to repeat the process, moving your head again in a circle. This further refines the Face ID data.
  • STEP #6: Once both scans are complete, you’ll see a message saying, “Face ID is now set up“. Click “Continue.”
  • STEP #7: Now, to activate Face ID for Password AutoFill, toggle the “Password AutoFill” option to switch it on.
  • STEP #8: Enter your passcode when prompted to complete the process.
  • STEP #9: Now, click on the “Done” button to finish the Face ID setup process.

Face ID is now enabled on your iPhone, and you can use it for authorizing app purchases and more. Make sure to keep your Face ID data secure and only enable it for features you’re comfortable with.
