How does Face ID work?

Once you have set up Face ID, with a simple glance, Face ID securely unlocks iPhone X and the Westpac Mobile Banking app. Face ID is enabled by the TrueDepth camera system, which uses advanced technologies to accurately map the geometry of your face.


Face ID automatically adapts to changes in your appearance, and carefully safeguards the privacy and security of your biometric data.
