Chaos Computer Club sustine ca poate trece de noul cititor de amprenta de la Apple cu o fotografie a amprentei utilizatorului original. Pe internet au aparut demonstratii video despre cum se poate face acest lucru.

“First, the fingerprint of the enroled user is photographed with 2400 dpi resolution. The resulting image is then cleaned up, inverted and laser printed with 1200 dpi onto transparent sheet with a thick toner setting. Finally, pink latex milk or white woodglue is smeared into the pattern created by the toner onto the transparent sheet. After it cures, the thin latex sheet is lifted from the sheet, breathed on to make it a tiny bit moist and then placed onto the sensor to unlock the phone. This process has been used with minor refinements and variations against the vast majority of fingerprint sensors on the market.”
iPhone 5s de la Apple include un cititor de amprenta care poate fi folosit sa deblochezi telefonul si sa faci cumparaturi din Apple iTunes Store. Utilizatorii pot continua sa foloseasca si un cod pin sau o parola ca alternativa la cititorul de amprenta, dar posibilitatea ca cineva sa gaseasca parola este mult mai mare decat riscul ca cineva sa iti copiezeĀ  amprenta.
