Google Pixel 6a fingerprint sensor has major security issues

Google Pixel 6a

The new Google Pixel 6a seems to have big problems with the security of its fingerprint sensor. This should actually only unlock the stored fingers - but apparently it doesn't.

According to several hints, the phone should also be able to be unlocked by other users simply by placing their fingers or thumbs on the sensor. That's exactly what shouldn't be possible. Apparently the phone just unlocks when a finger is detected on the sensor, whether it's the right one or not.

Fingerprint sensors are basically the standard for smartphone biometric security, so what's the point if basically anyone can unlock the phone? Nothing!

Google hasn't really commented on this issue yet. Google will probably roll out a corresponding patch in the next few days.
