    So I know I'm relatively new here but I wanted to see if anyone has seen the behavior I stumbled upon today when using Siri and Shazam. Apparently, when using Siri to identify a song with Shazam FROM the lockscreen, it bypasses the touch ID and passcode. I shot a video and posted it to youtube to explain what I am talking about.



    Now, I dont know if this is intentional or not on Apple's part and I have checked my privacy and touch ID settings and I did not see anything about having to prompt for a passcode or touch ID when using Shazam + Siri. I dont want to be a whistleblower or anything but this seems like a pretty big security hole if you ask me...

    We have postings like this every few days. In 99% of the cases it's user error. Try activating Siri with a finger that is not registered for Touch ID.

    Ok, I just tried that and yep...I cant get into Shazam from the lock screen without using one of my "authenticated" fingers. I didnt realize that my finger was already authenticated when I tried using shazam and siri together. Makes sense though if I want to get quick access to the app.

    Sorry for the false alert lol. I really thought I was onto something :)

    Perhaps it's time to change your name to PadawanKyle.
