Touch ID is one of iPhone's distinct and unique features. This is because it allows users to access their devices by simply swiping their fingers on the touch ID sensor. This sensor reads the fingerprint and grants registered user access to the device. Although the touch ID is very useful, some users might decide they want to disable it for privacy purposes or a variety of other reasons.

1. Go to the setting app on your iPhone.
2. Click on "Touch ID and Passcode" and verify user with your passcode as required.
3. Beneath the "Use Touch ID for" group, toggle the switches to turn off Touch ID. (Note: Turn it off for all the options if you want to totally disable the function).

a. iPhone Unlock – This disables Touch ID when unlocking the device
b. Apply Pay – This prevents the use of Touch ID in making Apple Pay transactions.
c. iTunes – This disables Touch ID from being used on App Store and iTunes transactions.
Remember to enable a passcode and ensure it is active, and then you can exit from iPhone settings.

There situations where you might need to quickly disable touch ID, for instance in emergency situations. Apple is introducing a new and easy way to quickly disable touch ID in iOS 11, the "Cop Button". The new setting is being designed to handle calls to emergency services.

The Cop Button setting allows iPhone users to tap the power button quickly five times to enable them call 911 or any other emergency code. Although, it should be noted that this feature doesn't automatically dial 911 by default. What is does is bring up an option to dial 911 and also disables Touch ID until you input your passcode.
