And if someone gets ahold of your phone and manages to point it at your face, that might unlock it (provided you turn your attention toward it).Apple has safeguards in place, just as it did with Touch ID: If Face ID tries to authenticate on someone else‘s face and fails several time

Prior to iOS 11, once an app was installed on an iOS device, you either kept it or removed it.
