    Even with the passcode enabled, when i plug the iPhone into any computer, you can still view the screenshots and pictures that you have taken without even needing to put a passcode in. I've also tried disabling the iPhone for like one minute and even with the phone disabled, the pictures can still be accessed. I think that this is a security flaw that apple should look into.

    sounds like an individual program. Not a flaw. My requires the passcode in order to see anything on it.

    Are you talking about viewing them on the computer or on the phone?

    iPhoto allows you to view photos from the phone when it's plugged in. That's why I'm asking.

    Yes i am talking about viewing them on the computer. Whenever i plug it in, it allows me to browse the camera roll and also the screenshots but on the computer only. The phone is still locked.

    Browsing and transferring are two different things.

    I believe it only works on the computer it's synced to. I can't confirm this though.

    Not only can the pictures be viewed but they can be copied to the computer via drag and drop.

    If you have a passcode on it i dont think it will work on any other computer except your own.
