Critical data exposed regardless of security settings…

Recommended Posts

Regardless of your security settings, be they passcode with digits, fingerprint, facial, or some combination thereof… upon launch before the locked screen is presented and you are asked for a fingerprint or password, you get a chance to peek at the screen last used. A screenshot can even be snuck in. Slower phones give you more time, this ( screenshot ) was taken on an iPhone 8 Plus, with fingerprint authentication enabled.

I've been trying to test the security issue on an iPad Pro with the  latest software version.
Most tests displayed the key entry screen without revealing data.

Is this a consistent error on your device?  Do you see any pattern.

This was a known problem, at least for me , a year or two ago. Then it disappeared. It is now back on iOS 12 and latest couple of EN versions. Extremely bad security. As a former programmer, this should be an easy and consistent fix. Come on Evernote.
