We’ve already seen how some hackers have been able to bypass the Touch ID fingerprint feature in the iPhone 5s, but now it appears there’s more to learn about this new feature.
Canadian YouTube channel JTechAppleTV has discovered the initial Touch ID profile setup on the iPhone 5s can be successfully completed using not only your own finger–but those of others too. The videos show three sets of different fingers being able to setup a Touch ID profile and successfully unlock the iPhone 5s afterwards. Touch ID does allow for five finger profiles as advertised–but here, we see different fingers being successfully used in one setup tutorial.
Justin explains their original test had up to five different fingers from different people work, but only showed three for the sake of the video. This could be a way to add more than the five finger limit to Touch ID’s profile.

Let us know if you were able to replicate this with Apple’s Touch ID profile setup. Should Touch ID’s profile setup be allowing this to happen?
