iOS 7 Bug Allows Users To Disable Find My iPhone Feature Without A Password (Video)

iOS 7 Bug Allows Users To Disable  Find My iPhone Feature Without Needing A Password - In the current version of iOS 7, it is a bug that appears to allow user to disable the Find My iPhone feature, without needing to type in a password, that essentially hides it from being located on which makes it useless. Let,s know more details and watch the relevant video after the jump.

 As it is shown In the video below, deactivating Find My iPhone takes few simple steps as it is very simple hack. But it seems to be effective to iOS devices running iOs 7.0.x. and it doesn't affect those on iOS 7.1 beta. The processor makes a few changes to the iCloud account section of the Settings app.

 The exploit does not remove Apple's Activation Lock the deterrent system, although it disables Find My iPhone and allow the iOS device to be erased. During the setup process, the device will remain locked to the original account and continue to ask for that Apple ID and password to resume functionality. The bug is a useful method for locating a lost device.

When Apple releases the software, users have to update their phones with a Passcode and install iOS 7.1 to avoid having disabled my iPhone. The exploit requires access to the Settings menu, so the bypass only works on a device that does not have Touch ID or a Passcode enabled.
