So far I have had a great experience using Face ID on my iPhone. Facial recognition technology can carry out all the assigned tasks with desired security and reliability. Case in point, autofilling passwords, and credit card info in Safari with Face ID on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR is pretty simple.
Once you have set up Safari AutoFill on your iPhone, you won’t need to enter saved information manually. Simply authenticate your identity using Face ID and you are done.
For those unfamiliar, iCloud Keychain allows you to keep your account names, passwords, and even credit cards numbers safe and up-to-date across your devices.
