iPhone owners beware! One of the smartphone's security features might not be so great after all. The Apple Touch ID fingerprint sensor -available on iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus - is supposed to keep thieves out, but it turns out criminals might just need photos to break into your phone.
Chaos Computer Club (CCC), a hacker association in Germany, didn't even need to gather an actual fingerprint to fool the technology. Instead, it used several high-quality photos of Minister of Defense Ursula von der Leyen to create usable fingerprints.
The process takes quite a bit of work and requires multiple high-resolution photos. But, it could still pose a serious security risk for politicians and government officials who are constantly in front of cameras.
