How do I turn off iPhone Private Browsing Authentication in Safari? As we all know Apple launched the iPhone 15 in September introducing iOS 17 along with the iPhone 15 release. Apple included numerous new features in iOS 17 including new privacy and security features. One of the additions is for Safari where your private browsing tab now requires authentication to open.
iPhone/iPad running with iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 now have the Private Browsing Authentication feature in the Safari browser. If you have any private browser tab open on your iPhone or iPad and when you exit that tab, upon reopening you now need Face ID or Touch ID authentication or you need to enter a passcode to regain access.
Some of us might appreciate this feature while others may not as every person in this world has different tastes. Don’t worry in this guide I will tell you how you can disable iPhone Private Browsing Authentication in Safari. Here’s how:
- Open Settings on your iPhone/ iPad.
- Scroll down you will find Safari.
- Tab on Safari or you can search it.
- You will find the “Privacy & Security” section.
- Turn off the switch next to Require Face ID to Unlock Private Browsing.
Note: iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 only these updates have the option of iPhone Private Browsing Authentication in Safari.
