Apple’s Siri Security Flaw

A massive security hole has been found in iOS 11 which causes Siri to read aloud your private notifications, even if your iPhone or iPad is locked.

In fact, all you have to do to exploit this is simply ask Siri to read notifications and it will comply giving a full rundown including the content of new emails, Facebook, Skype, Telegram and WhatsApp messages. Perhaps unsurprisingly, only Apple’s own Messages app is unaffected.

How To Fix

For now, the only workaround is to disable all iOS lock screen notifications (Settings > Notifications > Show on Lock Screen)

The latest version of iPhone software will shortly be released so make sure that after the update you recheck the fix above.
