    Are anyone else concerned about security with the new quick reply feature?

    From what I have seen there are no limitation in answering messages from the lock screen using quick reply without getting prompted with pass code or touch ID. I have pass code activated immediately after I lock my phone, but I can still answer messages from lock screen.

    I guess the same would also be the case with quick reply of mail, facebook messages, facebook comments and any other third party application that add this feature.

    I know it is called quick reply and that entering the pass code would make it 'not so quick reply', but does not the security aspect concern anybody except me?

    Have I overlooked something?

    There's a setting in the TouchID menu called Reply with Message which controls this.

    I see. So i did miss something. I guess disabling this will be the safe mode for the quick reply feature then.


    Thanks!
