    Hello guys

    I password protect my phone, and I just noticed a vulnerability that would bypass the password.

    Simply hold down the camera shutter button, starting the camera app.
    than press the back button, allowing you to access the home screen, completely bypassing the password

    I have tested this on my fully updated LG quantum

    It's a bug with that specific phone then. My Lumia 800 will let you take pictures without entering a password, but pressing back just takes you back to the lockscreen so you can't do anything else.

    My Titan still asks for the password by doing what you say the_tyrant. Must be phone specific. :dry
