Apple iOS 7 Lock Screen Bypassing !!

Posted On : Sep 22nd 2013 by Rishi Aggarwal

Apple iOS 7's coolest thing is the new Control Center. Even when the phone is locked, you can quickly toggle airplane mode, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Do Not Disturb mode, and also lock the phone's orientation. Sliders adjust brightness and volume, and you can access the clock, calculator, camera, and the new flashlight. Cool!

Now for the bad news. Anybody with physical access to your phone can use Control Center to bypass the lockscreen and get partial (but significant) access to your phone's data.

A Simple Technique

Most lockscreen bypass hacks are really, really tough to manage. None of us as PCMag were able to duplicate the iOS 6.1 hack reported earlier this year, and the Samsung lockscreen hack only gave an attacker access for a second at a time. By contrast, the iOS 7 hack is really simple; I mastered it in a few minutes.

Before trying it yourself, open Settings, tap General, tap Passcode Lock, and check the setting titled Require Passcode. For purposes of experimentation, you'll want to set that to Immediately. Turn off the phone, and let's get started. (You do want to try it yourself, don't you?)

Turn the phone on, swipe up to reveal Control Center, and select the clock. Hold the power button until you see "slide to power off." Now comes the fast-fingers part. Tap Cancel and immediately double-tap the Home button. If you've done it right, the "multitasking" icon strip will slide into view. If not... try again.

Partial Access
You still don't have full access to all of the phone's features, but you can do quite a lot even so. Most importantly, you can use the full camera app, not the limited version that's available even when the phone is locked. That means you can view, edit, delete, or share any photo

Note, too, that the ability to share photos gives you full access to the contacts list. You're not limited to sending photos; you can add, delete, or edit contacts. And of course you can send any message you want (along with a photo) via text, email, Twitter, or Facebook.

Protect Yourself
Here's how to remove the lovely-but-flawed Control Center from your lockscreen. Launch the Settings app, tap Control Center, and turn off Access on Lock Screen. While you're at it, consider a few additional lockscreen limitations. Do you really want a phone thief to chat with Siri? Probably not. So... Settings, General, Passcode Lock, and make sure it's set to not allow Siri when the phone is locked.

Another handy iOS 7 feature is the ability to swipe down at the lockscreen and view your notification center. Here you can see reminders, messages, alerts, stocks, and more. So can a phone thief. To thoroughly protect your privacy, tap Notification Center in the Settings app and turn off the two options for viewing data on a locked phone.
