    lately, I woke up early in the morning then I saw my Iphone 6 is unlocked and into 9gag app! I recently used it before I went to bed but this is so scary and strange! I'm pretty sure I locked my phone before I sleep its also has a passcode and a Touch id lock! and I also remembered its on 90% when I locked it up but when I saw it open its now only 80%! NO my phone is not jailbreak my software is up to date on iOs 8.4. Can someone explain this to me please. I don't feel safe now I'm paranoid.

    Probably someone in your house. Best to stop using 9gag.

    Reasons:
    1. You were sleep walking playing with your phone. Turn it off and lock it out of your bedroom.
    2. You are delusional, go see a doctor.
    3. Someone broke into your house, change your lock.
    4. Your phone is messed up. Wipe, set up as new, and stop surfing porn with your phone.

    Lets see whats is more probable...

    - Someone has any interest on your iphone, went to great lengths to hack it remotely and all they did was to use the 9GAG app...

    - It was you that forgot to close the app before going to sleep

    - It was you that during the sleep played with your phone, and you left the 9GAG app opened...

    - There is someone living in your house that you don't know of and when you are sleeping he/she comes out and likes to play with your phone. He/She uses your finger to unlock the touch id...


    I'm preeeeeetttyyyyy sure the first and last have very very very very very very low probabilities of happening, so... Dude, it was you... ;)

    I'm pleased you're not the only one with this issue! This is a fairly new phenomenon that has only just been reported. Basically, it's caused by a fatal liveware flaw in iOS. At the moment Apple haven't found a patch, so what I'd suggest you do is delete the 9GAG application immediately and never download it again. That would go towards resolving the problem.

    ^^if you're interested on reading how it happens.

    Maybe you are so tired and sleepy already. Sometimes we tend to forget things that we do when we are weary. Or maybe a ghost is living with you. :) hehe.
