Google Pixel 6a Security Lapse

HomePhonesGoogle Pixel 6a Security Lapse

Google Pixel 6a was recently launched by its makers in numerous countries but many users have discovered a massive security lapse in one of its features. There have been quite a few complaints that their smartphone can be unlocked through any fingerprint not just theirs.

Only last week there was a report where two users complained about the under-display fingerprint sensor that allowed anyone to unlock it including those that had not registered their fingerprints ahead of time.

The reports are growing alarmingly high as six more people have come out with similar complaints ranging from being able to unlock the phone with a different unregistered finger to being able to unlock another’s handset.

This alarming security lapse has elicited extreme negative reactions from many viewers who have called out Google for this poor testing the handsets as now none of them can trust their fingerprint scanner with their personal and sensitive info.
