OnePlus 7 Pro Fingerprint Scanner Hacked – YouTube Video

Very recently, A reviewer from Max Tech YouTube channel revealed that the display fingerprint sensor in onePlus 7 pro is vulnerable to compromise and unlock the phone using a hot-glue gun.

He just makes a fake fingerprint using Elmer’s glue by just dropping a blob of hot-glue onto some tinfoil then perform a fingerprint impression on the glue which creates a fake fingerprint once it dries within few minutes.

He pulled it back carefully and tested it in OnePlus 7 pro where the fake fingerprint was working successfully by just overlay the fake fingerprint copy, and the device finally unlocked within a second.

Even though One Plus 7 Pro impressively quick unlock the phone but they failed to improve the security.

The cloned fingerprint could also open a OnePlus 6T but didn’t fool the ultrasonic reader used by the Samsung S10.

The process is little hard in practical since you need to get the target phone owners fingerprint, but it’s possible to grab the fingerprint while victim sleeping and you could just use their own finger again.

If you’re concern about security, then you make sure to implement an alternative extra layer of protection such as password unlock.
