    Touch ID is awesome. It's a great option for iPhone users whose security concerns don't extend to fear of practical jokes by friends and family. If practical jokes are a major concern of yours, then by all means don't use it on your iPhone - or stick with BlackBerry.

    I hope that Apple is making haste with the international rollout, though there is not a great urgency here, since my current method of payment is very quick these days.

    I like that Touch ID is tied into my apps as well. It actually allows me to use difficult passwords in more places, since I don't have to enter these passwords so often anymore. I did that with 1Password, for example. My master password is now a lot longer and more difficult, because I only have to enter it very rarely.
    So basically if one was to hack you they would have access to your entire information right ?

    And how would someone 'hack' me? I don't sync my entire 1Password library by the way, only a very small vault with some of the login data I access on my phone, nothing else.

    iPhones have never been for the uber security conscience people anyway and the fingerprint sensor is no different. This 7-year old didn't discover anything new he just did it to his computer security university professor dad who made the story public enough it caught CNNs eye. For the most part I think the fingerprint security that iPhone offers is good enough for the masses using it.

    I like the BlackBerry's picture password but you can't really say it's more secure; it's just a superficial layer on top of what's already there. If you get the wrong answer too many times then it just reverts to the device password.

    Superficial layer lol wow ok the only superficial layer is a finger scanner because they are other ways to easily replicate ones finger prints.
    And what you are forgetting is how would they know your password in the 1 st place? When ur using picture password to unlock your phone?

    Interesting that iPhone requires password entry if the phone hasn't been unlocked in 48 hours or has been rebooted.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions. That's why I don't take this or any forum personally. I listen to all sides and perspective and possibly learn a few things for the next time I'm at a table of debaters or just trying to start a conversation.

    OP has an opinion. Some of us are countering. That's what a discussion is.

    It's not up to you to decide if my data is worth protecting. It is up to ME if I want to control access to that data. Which is why I would not be happy if security on my device would be easily circumvented.

    Really? We all act like we work for National Security in here. Most people in here have regular jobs and their phones don't contain information containing ultra sensitive data. Even in here this thread the big threat is "oh my god they could change my Facebook status!" Give me a break. If a thief came up to me and asked me to unlock my phone by putting my fingerprint on it or he was going to shoot me then I would oblige because there is nothing I have on my phone that isn't as sensitive as protecting my life or a family members life. I would do the same thing if they held a gun to my head and said "unlock your Blackberry with this picture password thing you have on your phone." If a family member when I was sleeping got into my phone by putting my fingerprint on it big deal. What are they going to get? Are they going to see porn? Inappropriate texts? Nothing short of anything that might be at the most embarrassing for someone.

    If a police officer was asking me to unlock my phone I'm assuming they would have a good reason to be asking and I would do it if I was being accused of something wrong and wanted to prove my innocence.

    Most people in here don't keep national security secrets on their phone. So what is someone getting if they get access to it? Emails, photos, texts? I'm not protecting the country with classified data on my phone. For those that are yeah I could see this being scary. For the dad who's 7 year old unlocked his phone I don't think the kid did anything that caused a crisis in this mans life. We talk security in here so much because it's something to cling to with BB but at the end of the day it's an overblown topic and no phone is truly secure if someone wants in it bad enough.

    Maybe I am just different, but this is not a scary thought for me. I trust my friends and family otherwise they wouldn't be close enough to me to make use of this so-called exploit. Do you really lock your phone because the thought of your friends and family gaining access to it scares you?
    Seems you and I are the only one with close friends and family who are trustworthy.

    How sad for the rest.

    You get it repaired or a replacement?
    Yup. Simple 10 minute ride to the Pntagin City Mall. Walk out with new phone. Love Apple customer service.

    Or connect your spare iPhone (I always keep last year's device for emergencies) to iTunes and restore it from backup.

    The whole premise of the thread is that iPhones contain a security flaw because friends and family can unlock the phone while you are sleeping. The OP's sleepover comment was a joke I guess, but the basic premise of the thread doesn't appear to be a joke and some people are arguing here that it is an actual security flaw. The fact that the OP was at least partly joking kind of helps to prove the point that this isn't a real security problem. In the absence of an abusive situation, most of us are not concerned about real harm being done to us by friends and family while we sleep. I hope BlackBerry implements something like Touch ID. It's a really nice feature.

    Those who are against it now will LOVE it when BlackBerry does it. That's the tradition. Come down hard on something until BlackBerry does it. Then it's AMAZING. I remember being hanged drawn and quartered then strung up when I bought my SGIII because WHO NEEDS B I G PHONES AND THOSE NOTE DEVICES ARE SOOOOOOO BIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!

    Yes. I totally agree.

    Mmmhhh... how about we really wait for BlackBerry's implementation...?

    They might come up with something really innovative and most of all, really secure ...

    Once BlackBerry does it, it's really amazing. For real :-D

    Of course it's a scary thought because there are endless possibilities to what people can do with this exploit. You want me to give another example...

    Cheating spouse or boyfriend/girlfriends out there you are warned, your partner, the one sleeping next to you every night can easily go through your private messages when you are a sleep. Either delete those racy photos and messages or use a different security

    This thread is also used to inform the people who are using this feature to think twice before it becomes a ritual. I think it's a great feature but it can only protect you so much before you don't know what hit you. Now that you know the risk, I hope everyone here makes wise choices in life.

    Maybe I am just different, but this is not a scary thought for me. I trust my friends and family otherwise they wouldn't be close enough to me to make use of this so-called exploit. Do you really lock your phone because the thought of your friends and family gaining access to it scares you?

    Of course. Because everything BlackBerry does is always absolutely perfect.

    By that time it won't do me any good of course. That said, I'm extremely happy with Touch ID. I've got none of those bizarre scenarios some have come up with. Maybe because I don't know too many frat boy types?
