u havent read the post properly... It was bypassed cos the lady used the silicone screen protector to register her fingerprint and wt actually got registered were the dots on the silicone protector and not her fingerprint...

that's what I have mentioned in the post, and I don't think that when it comes to privacy one should not get it breached by any means.

bro the issue is dt wt the lady registered is actually the dots on the silicone case nd not her actual fingerprint so everytime anyone put pressure on mobile it recognised the dots nd not the fingerprints....

I agree to ur point bro as far as security is concerned there cannot be a compromise... But the point I am trying to make here is dt dis flaw is actually non-existent in the true sense bt the fact dt they ve used a silicone case to register the fingerprint is the whole reason fr the blunder...
