Google Pixel 6a can be unlocked by any fingerprint, say some users: Details here


Google recently launched Pixel 6a smartphone in multiple countries a few days back and now some buyers have noticed that any fingerprint is able to unlock their new phones in a rather worrying security lapse by Google. According to 9To5Google, last week, two reports emerged about the Pixel 6a‘s under-display fingerprint sensor (UDFPS) allowing anybody to unlock it. This includes people that did not register their fingerprints ahead of time. Now there are, so far, six additional reports of this occurring. They range from being able to unlock with a different finger that was not registered to being able to unlock another person’s Pixel 6a, the report said.

Notable reviewer Geekyranjit, in a tweet, said, “Looks like Google did a poor job of testing the Pixel 6a … just like the Pixel 6 and the 6 Pro that had tons of issues. Here on the Pixel 6a after this I can’t trust the fingerprint scanner on this device as of now”. Currently, the cause of the problem remains unknown and it is unclear if a new update will resolve the issue or whether there is a deeper hardware problem on affected phones.
