A bug in the current iOS 13 and iPadOS betas reportedly allows people to bypass security and access usernames and passwords in the Settings app — though in practice, the issue is a relatively minor threat.
Within the app, people can repeatedly tap on the “Website & App Passwords” option and bypass Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode, iDeviceHelp noted on Monday. The issue is minor as a device must already be unlocked to access Settings.
Apple has been warned about the problem, but has yet to acknowledge it.
MacDailyNews Take: Install beta software at your own risk. Always backup your data. It may even be worth running a test Apple ID to protect data. (This won’t be a problem when the iOS ships – finding things like this is what beta testing is for).
