Pixel 6a fingerprint lock can be unlocked even by unregistered fingerprints

27 July 2022 3

Google's Pixel 6a went on pre-orders starting last week and a few users have already started to receive their units. Some of these users along with a few tech YouTubers have complained about a major fingerprint scanner bug on the Pixel 6a. The issue is so severe that it could potentially be risky for users unaware of it.

As per complaints, Pixel 6a's in-display fingerprint scanner can be unlocked even with unregistered fingerprints. YouTube channels Beebom and Geekyranjit have shared videos showing the serious bug in action. One can see that people who have not registered fingerprints on the Pixel 6a are able to unlock the smartphone with ease. The second video shows that the host was able to unlock the phone with both his thumbs even though he registered only one.

It should be noted that Google is yet to offer an official statement on the situation. There is a high probability that it is not a widespread issue and is affecting only a few of the units. While we wait for that, it is advised that you set a PIN or password lock if your unit is affected by the issue. We will keep you posted as and when Google will share official words.
