Hackers trick new iPhone's fingerprint security system

One of the newest security features on the iPhone is not all that safe.

It took German hackers about 24 hours to figure out a way to trick the new fingerprint scan technology on the iPhone 5S.

While the process certainly is complicated, it means that the feature everyone thought could be the end-all in phone security is already compromised. It may seem like a lot of effort, but considering the amount of information we share on our phones on a daily basis, the time it takes hackers to access a phone is worth it.

We recommend always keeping an eye on your phone and using pre-installed software combined with old fashioned common sense to protect both your device and your information.
