iPad Security Vulnerability: FingerprintsApril 28, 2010 · 1 minute read · Comments
I have noticed a security vulnerability on the iPad – fingerprints! Each time I use my iPad I have to type in my four digit security code. This leaves four fingerprints telling you very clearly what four digits I use.
Now you only have to guess the order, and there are only 16 possible combinations. Unless I wipe the screen each time this makes it really easy to hack my iPad if it was lost or stolen. I think it’s time for a longer passcode.
Update: I also added a matte screen saver and this helps quite a bit.
