    A security issue on the high-end Nokia 9 PureView smartphone allows anyone to unlock the device, using not only unregistered fingerprints, but even things like a pack of gum.

    A video showing the unexpected bug was published recently on Twitter, with several users confirming the problem on their devices too.

    In other words, this doesn’t seem to be just an isolated case, and most likely, the issue was introduced in the latest Android 9 Pie update labeled as version 4.22.
