We’ve all been guilty of lending our phones to others whether it be a friend or a loved one, some of us take precautions such as placing restrictions on our device before we lend it out to ensure that others can only access what we allow them to.

EverythingApplePro has shown that placing restrictions isn’t as safe as we would like thanks to a bug that allows people to make as many attempts at guessing your passcode as they like.

Currently if someone makes 6 incorrect guesses then they are locked out for a few minutes and this gets longer with the number of failed attempts, however with this bug a user simply has to manually change the time on your device and they are free to make another guess at your passcode. Perhaps lending your phone isn’t a good idea after all.
