Smartphone sensors ‘can reveal PINs and passwords’
A smartphone’s internal sensors may provide cybercriminals with enough information to be able to guess a user PINs and passwords, according to new research by Newcastle University in the UK.
Experts found that PINs and passwords could be deciphered relatively easily this way. Tests carried out by the university, for example, found that cybercriminals could work out a four-digit PIN with 70% accuracy on the first guess.
