The title should say it all but... When one is wearing a face mask to combat Covid-19, iOS knows and immediately asks for your unlock PIN or passcode. The problem is then when you need to authenticate quickly into another app that asks for FaceID and that fails, you are prompted to enter a password. Well, if your passwords are random and are recorded in 1PW — and you have a strong and long Master Password, that’s when the “fun” begins. If you need an app that requires password authentication because FaceID has failed — like a transit ticketing app and the conductor is now waiting for you to show a train ticket, you end up seriously holding up the works.
However, if 1Password offered an optional secondary PIN authentication into your account, provided FaceID has failed, that would speed the user’s ability to access their passwords. Since 1Password already offers this authentication method on non-biometric enabled devises, it seems like it could be offered on devises with biometric capability too.
