Apple’s Touch ID May Not Be As Secure as You Think

MAXKOE - "If you have an iPhone 5s and think that fingerprint scanner keeps your phone impenetrable you may want to take think again.

A YouTube video published by SRLabs details a way to get into and take control of not only an iPhone but several email and social accounts media associated with the device. The original owner could easily wipe their device when stolen but due to an easily accessed button for the airplane mode, the thief can block all incoming data (including the wipe-now command from Find My iPhone)."

The story is too old to be commented.
