The feature will be enabled by going to the settings. They can choose the ‘Require Face ID’ option enabled to use the feature. Once they enabled the feature, they will be offered four different options. Users can choose any one of them. However, enabling the feature won’t stop the notifications. users still will be able to check notifications with the lock screen.
