Do you know that Nokia 9 Pureview can be hacked with ordinary chewing gum

The recently-released Nokia 9 PureView smartphone has a major security flaw in its fingerprint authentication technology.

Users have reported that the fingerprint scanner on the Nokia 9 PureView sometimes unlocks the device when it reads an unregistered fingerprint.

A video also shows the device being unlocked by simply placing a pack of chewing gum on the on-screen fingerprint sensor.

Users on Reddit have also reported the same issue, stating that the smartphone can often be unlocked with any fingerprint or even other objects.

However, HMD Global that the company is rolling out an update which is meant to address this problem worldwide.

    • Prof. From the look of the video you can tell the facial detection feature was probably on and it recognized him the same time interval he used the chewing gum and also when she tried her finger. Possibly the camera recognized the person’s face, we all know face detection from Nokia 9 works from quite a distance.
      I think the problem here is that the face detection works the same time with the finger print sensor, an update should be able to fix this.
