Security on mobile devices has increasingly become a point of concern for users. With each new version of these operating systems, the focus is always on ensuring greater protection and inherent security.
Of course, the apps themselves follow the same path and explore what these basic systems offer. Facebook seems to be preparing to bring a new feature that brings even more security to iOS, using the Face ID from Apple and iOS.
More security on Facebook
The teams of developers of Facebook and its services have been working intensively to make their apps more secure. These are welcome improvements that help users to be more secure and without allowing access to their data.
In the most recent revelation, there was a potential improvement for Facebook on iOS. This will soon have another security element, using Face ID to unlock the app and give access to the contents there.
IOS Face ID will be responsible
In addition to the option to activate this new feature associated with Face ID, there will be other points that can be changed. We speak of the time when this authentication will be requested, which is divided into immediately, 1 minute, 15 or 1 hour.
It is not surprising that Facebook is bringing these security measures to this app. In addition to being already a requirement, other of your apps have taken this path recently. We have WhatsApp as main, both on Android and iOS.
Privacy is thus guaranteed easily
It is not known when this news will arrive or how. It is known that it is being tested in a restricted group of users and that it will use the same measures that the iPhone has available and configured. It is a complementary authentication to what is on the smartphone.
This is good news for anyone who has an iPhone and makes use of Facebook. This additional security measure will guarantee the protection of users, who thus have their data with an additional privacy layer.
