Hack - How To Unlock Any Fingerprint Enabled Smartphone Using A Sellotape

Sometime earlier last two or three years ago, we all know that a fingerprint enabled smartphone or device, is really a huge luxury to acquire. yea i'm talking of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Apple iPhone 6. But thanks to other 0EMs that started integrating this nice feature into their cheap affordable smartphones, that wouldn't cost a neck to acquire, thereby making the fingerprint security system, a household feature, as everyone gets a chance to enjoy this nice feature.

But just as they say, with great honour, comes great responsibility. We all know that locking our smartphones with the "has come to stay" fingerprint security system is one of the best way to secure your device from intruders.. "let them come and cut my hand na" 

But have you ever been in that situation where you really needed to get access to someone's phone, say a partner or friend, family member, or relative, but just noticed that, the device keeps laughing wickedly at you, because it is being locked with the owner's fingerprint, which means there's nothing you can do and you just can't get a chance to do whatever you wish to do with the device. Well today, lets just say, we have a one time solution to those kind of situations

So today i will be showing us a very simple trick that can help you get out of tight situations one day, this trick doesn't require any technical skills, it is something anyone can easily do, even a 5yrs old kid.

These are everything we'll be needing for this trick..

smartphone and sellotape

  1. A Sellotape
  2. Any Fingerprint enabled smartphone
NOTE: You should first of all try it with your own fingerprint to see that it works for you before testing it out on someone.

Fingerprint Hack Step 1:

Roll out a small piece of tape from the roll of sellotape, and paste it on the finger which is already registered on your smartphone.

  1. Tried it the first time on galaxy s6, it worked, but didn't work the second time.. anyway thanks for the tip.

    But of a truth, this simply means that we that are using fingerprint security to lock our phone, we are not safe again oh..

    me i will just be hiding my finger inside my pocket, in case anybody want to come near me with sellotape..

    1. Very funny, but nobody would want to do that na.. The point is not to use it to copy people's fingerprint and use it to harm them, of which no one will even give the chance to copy his or her fingerprint... its just for fun purposes only

  2. Thanks for the post. Would try it out.
