    Hello, I just upgraded to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4. When I double click the home button and click on the camera, I am able to unlock my phone without entering my pass code. It seems like a pretty blatant security flaw. Is there a way to turnoff this feature or password protect the camera app? Thanks.

    If all you can do it take the picture and review that single picture you took, then that is the way it should be.

    It's designed to do that so you can quickly take a picture. However when you press the home button it still prompts you to entre the passcode so you can't get any further then the camera.

    You are correct. I had to change the password unlock time. When I tried it earlier, I was able to go to my home screen after I was in the camera app. Thanks for the quick response.
