Recently I was showing off my shiny new iPhone 6 to a friend who is an avid Samsung user. He was particularly impressed with the Touch ID feature but didn’t believe it would work. I put the phone to sleep and passed it to him and told him to try and gain access. He pressed and held the Home button, Siri’s screen came up and my friend asked Siri to place a call to his phone. Siri obliged! I was surprised, but thought I might have settings wrong on my phone so I tried it on my wife’s brand new iPhone 6. Again Siri obliged. I have a pay as you go contract so unauthorised phone calls on my phone are not a major problem, however, on a monthly contract phone, unauthorised calls on a lost phone could prove to be very expensive! Perhaps you could warn other users of this glitch or let us all know if there is a way to stop Siri being quite so helpful until after the Touch ID or a passcode is used? Bill King Paul Blachford says Bill, we understand that you might have had a bit of shock there. It’s natural to assume that Touch ID is your digital guardian and prevents any kind of access to your iPhone, and indeed it does if you know where to look. By default you can ask Siri to place a call to one of your contacts without unlocking the phone first. If you go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode (you have to then use your passcode to see options), then scroll down to ‘Allow access when locked’ you can turn Siri off. From here you can also turn off access to the Today view, notifications, Passbook (which of course now contains bank cards for Apple Pay) and Reply with Message.
