How To Hack An iPhone's LockScreen


Most people add a passcode to their iPhone as the first line of defense to help prevent other people from accessing their personal details.

The Question is -  Is the passcode really enough?

Basically, it's quite easy for anyone with access to your iPhone to bypass the passcode protection (it doesn't matter if you configured your Touch ID or not) and access your personal photos and messages.

A  critical security flaw has been discovered in iOS 8 and newer versions , including 10.2 beta 3. The flaw allows anyone to bypass the iPhone's passcode and gain access to personal information using Apple's personal assistant Siri.

Apple will probably to fix this error in the next iOS version release .

All you need is to find out the phone number of the target's iPhone and access to the phone for just a few minutes.

But  if you don't have target's phone number? Don't worry . You can hold down the home button of target's iPhone to activate Siri and simply ask " Who am I?" Siri will reply you with the phone number it is using.

Here's How to bypass the iPhone's Lockscreen:

Once you got the phone number, follow these simple steps to reading personal messages and accessing personal photos on target's iPhone:

Step 1: Since you have the target's phone number, call his/her number.

Step 2: Now, the targets iPhone screen will display a message icon, just tap on 'Message icon' and then 'Custom Message' to go to the New Message screen where you are allowed to type a reply.

Step 3: Next, you need to activate Siri by long-pressing the Home button and say "Turn on Voice Over," and Siri will get the job done by turning it ON.

Step 4: Go back to the message screen and double tap the bar where you are required to enter the caller's name and then hold, while immediately click on the keyboard. This may not succeed in the first time, so repeat this step until you see a slide-in effect on the iPhone's screen above the keyboard.

Step 5: Now, ask Siri to "Turn off VoiceOver," come back to messages and simply type in the first letter of a caller's name in the top bar, tap ⓘ icon next to it, and then create a new contact.

Step 6: Next, you can select add photo and choose a photo. Yes, now you are in and can look at the victim's photo gallery just like you are browsing the phone, even though the iPhone is still in the locked state.

Step 7: You can select any contact on the iPhone, and you would be able to see all previous conversations of the target with that contact.
