Beware: Google Pixel 6A Unlocks With Unregistered Fingerprints

Scribbled Arrow

Google's most recent Pixel is experiencing some issues that we've seen frequently; however, this one might be more serious. 

The reviewers have reported that fingerprint sensors in the newly released Pixel 6a appear to unlock even when using not registered fingers.

The issue was first brought into the light of day by GeekyRanjit and Beebom, who posted it on YouTube. 

Through their tests, the Pixel 6a was unlocked with the thumbprints of two other team members; even the prints of these members were never registered.

The results were confirmed through Geekyranjit on YouTube, which showed him in a position to unlock the phone using both of his thumbprints. However, only one of them was recognized.

It's a given that this will negate the security advantages of having fingerprint locks within the phone in the beginning. 

The good news is that this is likely to be something Google will be able to fix in its software which is why it's essential to keep an eye on it.

If you have the device but are concerned about its security, create a strong password.
