    The front camera of my phone will not work.
    The camera app works, but only if I authorize it to use phone (like, the dialing authorization) which it never needed before.
    But in the camera app, I only have the rear-facing camera (which works) and no button to switch the two cameras.

    I JUST did a factory reset and the problem is still there. No apps have been installed.

    Would like to solve this ASAP so I can use banking app again (need camera to deposit money).

    That sounds like a defective front camera module. If the camera doesn't respond to the app, the app doesn't show the "switch cameras" icon. Unfortunately, the only way to "fix" that is to have the module replaced. (It's not all that expensive on most phones - you pay mostly for the labor.)
