Google Pixel 6a Users Report of Faulty Under-Display Fingerprint Sensor That Allows Anybody To Unlock It

Google Pixel 6a India Launch & Price Leaked Online: Report

San Francisco: As the new Google Pixel 6a is now available more widely, some users have noticed that any fingerprint is able to unlock their new phones in a rather worrying security lapse by the tech giant. According to 9To5Google, last week, two reports emerged about the Pixel 6a’s under-display fingerprint sensor (UDFPS) allowing anybody to unlock it. This includes people that did not register their fingerprints ahead of time. Google Pixel 6a Now Available for Sale in India via Flipkart, Check Offers Here.

Now there are, so far, six additional reports of this occurring. They range from being able to unlock with a different finger that was not registered to being able to unlock another person’s Pixel 6a, the report said.

One person said the issue did not occur again after removing all saved fingerprints and re-adding them. The report mentioned that most buyers do not appear to have this issue with the Pixel 6a.

It is unclear if a new update will resolve the issue or whether there is a deeper hardware problem on affected phones, the report said. This month, a report said that 36 per cent of Google Pixel owners wish to switch to other brands amid issues.
