I love that private browsing is behind a Face ID authentication. I hope they bring this to all safari profiles as an option. If youre home and want to hand your phone or iPad to the kids, it’s fine that they can access your Personal profile but they shouldn’t be able to open your Work profile without authentication. Easy to implement this since each profile has its own settings.
