Question: Using Face ID to approve family purchases
I'm sure that after I set up my iPhone X last weekend I was able to approve family purchase requests with Face ID. Now, for every request I get (and with 3 kids I get lots of them!) I'm being forced to type in my Apple ID password, which is frustrating given how complicated they have to be these days to be considered secure.
I've checked every setting I can find, turned relevant settings off and back on, and even removed the Apple ID from my phone entirely and set it back up again. But sadly, it still wants me to type in the full password. Interestingly, it still lets me use Touch ID on my iPad to approve so it seems to be specific to the iPhone X/Face ID combo.
Has anyone else experienced this and found a way to correct it?
iPhone X, iOS 11.1
