If you have utilized Checkra1n to jailbreak your A11 chip iPhone (iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and more), then you must be aware of the fact that, due to non-availability of a SEP bypass, you cannot use Face ID or Touch ID on your jailbroken iOS device. This brings serious security concerns. The iOS developer FoxfortMobile took notice of this and brings for us the amazing Checkl0ck tweak that nicely takes care of this issue.
While you certainly can utilize alternative jailbreak utilities like Taurine, UnC0ver, and more; but if you choose to stay with Checkra1n then Checkl0ck tweak will give you the peace of mind that you need as far as security of your jailbroken iOS device is concerned.
