Siri Bug Allows Mobile Data To Be Disabled From Lock Screen Without A Passcode

Problems associated with Siri and their ability to provide information even when the screen is locked are not uncommon. They are by default flaws that inadvertently allow access to iOS functions.

A new bug has been reported by a Reddit user that allows you to control access to the mobile data connection of any iPhone, even when the iPhone is locked.

Siri is not expected to accept commands on the lock screen without at least confirming the user code, thus ensuring the minimum security that the orderer is authorized to do so.

A recently discovered flaw shows that Siri, once again, has problems and is allowing mobile data to be turned off by simply saying mobile data.

What’s more, if you give the order to turn on the mobile data or turn off the mobile data, Siri and iOS require the user to enter their lock code as expected.

From the tests performed, it was concluded that this problem is not unique to iOS 10, and is also present in previous versions. It is also likely not to be limited to mobile data but can be exploited for Bluetooth and other functions.

The tech giant Apple should not yet be aware of this flaw since it is present in the latest iOS test version, 10.3.3 beta. It is also natural that a correction to this problem will very soon arise.

As in previous issues, and until the tech giant Apple issues a fix for the problem, iPhone users should disable Siri and access the control center through the lock screen.
