If you have an iPhone 5s or later, and that iPhone has a Home button, or if you have an iPad that offers Touch ID, you can set it up to work as a passcode for your iPhone or iPad and App Store purchases and for apps like 1Password or Notes. If your iPhone or iPad doesn't have a Home button, you'll want to read our article on how to set up Face ID instead.

Biometric authentication protects our phones, but also introduces new privacy concerns by leaving iPhone users open to the possibility of criminals stealing data or law enforcement accessing it without a warrant. If you have even a few seconds notice before a robbery or unlawful search, you can discreetly and temporarily disable Touch and Face ID on your iPhone; let's learn how.

This may or may not be important to you, but it’s good to know what can and cannot be accessed from Lock screen. Here’s how to turn Voice Dial off on iPhone.
