Enable Attention Aware Features on iPhone
While Face ID makes your iPhone secure, there is still the possibility of someone being able to gain access to your iPhone by holding the device to your Face, while you are asleep.
Apple’s solution to this rare possibility is to make your iPhone to unlock the device only when you directly look at the screen.
You can easily make Face ID more secure by enabling Attention Aware Features, as available on iPhone X and later models of iPhone.
Open Settings > tap on Face ID & Passcode > On the next screen, move the toggle next to Attention Aware Features to ON position.
Once you Enable Attention Aware Features, the Front Camera on your iPhone will start detecting whether or not you are directly looking at the screen.
Note: Enabling Attention Detection helps in reducing the time Face ID needs to confirm your identity before unlocking your device.
