    Only works if Siri is enabled on lock screen. On my iPhone Siri is disabled in lock screen.

    Good to know, disabling now. I hope Apple fixes this.

    This doesn't work on my 6S using 9.2.1, with Siri enabled on the lock screen. I have no option to share the search text, only copy/paste. It does work if I use any finger which is registered with Touch ID which is what I would expect.

    I can't find a setting to "Disable Siri on the Lock Screen", so I just disabled Siri altogether.

    iPhone 6s+ running iOS 9.2.1

    Maybe that loophole was closed?

    I don't think you need to do either. This doesn't appear to be a real vulnerability if the device only offers a share option once it's unlocked via Touch ID.

    Could be, there have been some exposures to user data through the lock screen that Apple's patched before.

    Were you trying it with one of your fingers that's registered for Touch ID?

    Hmmm. This vulnerability works even without using a TouchID finger on 9.0 here.
    My old 6 doesn't do this (iOS 8.3)

    There was a fix for that in 9.0.2. It's probably the same vulnerability.
    Edit: Indeed, this is what was fixed in 9.0.2.

    You need to go into Touch ID and passcode, enter your passcode and then you get the option to disable Siri from the lock screen.

    Tried it with my unregistered ring finger.
