    Per Apple,

    “If your device is lost or stolen, you can prevent Face ID from being used to unlock your device with Find My iPhone Lost Mode.”

    Wouldn’t the thief or finder have to know my passcode in order for FaceID to Associate his or her face with the device? Am I missing something or misreading the above statement?

    They mean that if the thieves use masks to unlock the X, you’ll be safe. Not that they would go into Settings and changing the saved face as a whole.

    If somebody has the ability to build a mask that can fool Face ID, you’d be protected from the phone being unlocked.

    That person would have to make a mask with your facial features.

    Yes, but that’s pretty much what I understood from that Apple Support link.
