Testing your App with FaceID Feature

Apple introduced the ability to perform face authentication via FaceID to enable secure and effortless access to the application. But it turns out to be a hindrance for mobility teams while testing their iOS apps on devices over cloud. To ease out the process of authenticating FaceID manually every time, you can now bypass the FaceID verification in your apps using our utility.

Note: The bypass FaceID feature will be available for iOS devices version 10.0.0 or above.
