This iPhone Glitch Lets People Access Your Photos & Contacts

It’s scary just how much we rely on our iPhones. From passwords to credit card specifics, there’s a lot of personal info stored in that tiny device. If any of it was to be leaked, well, that would be a major headache.

Redbook is reporting that our worst nightmare has come true. Apparently, a new iPhone glitch allows people access to your photos and contacts, even if your phone is locked and password protected. Youtube user Videosdebarraquito discovered the glitch and demonstrates just how easily someone can hack your iPhone. All they have to do is ask Siri to search Twitter from a locked phone and they’re in. Here’s how it works:

Yikes! That is too easy for my liking. If you’re like me and want to keep your phone private, change your Siri settings so it can not be used when your phone is locked. Do this by going to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode > Then under “Allow Access When Locked,” make sure Siri is switched off (not green).

We’re sure Apple is already on this issue to fix in it’s next update.
