Major Siri bug exposes all your hidden Signal messages on iPhone

  • Siri privacy bug lets it read out most hidden message content on a locked iPhone

Even with the "Show Previews" featured set to display only "When Unlocked"(Settings Notifications Show Previews), you can still ask Siri to read any hidden notifications out loud by saying "Hey Siri, read my notifications".

Apple started hiding notification previews by default when it rolled out iOS 11 past year. As for iOS 11.3 beta versions, the bug can be fixed by the time the final version comes out. That setting is on by default on the iPhone X, where simply glancing at it will unlock the phone and allow the content to be displayed, while it can be set on other models.

To hide or show message content on the Lock screen, go into Settings Notifications, choose the app, select Previews and then choose your option. This, however, can be bypassed by using Siri. If prompted, Siri will read out whatever details are within the app without checking to make sure it's the primary user.

That being said, this issue only seems to affect third-party apps since Siri didn't read out SMS notifications.

Judge temporarily blocks 15-week abortion ban
We will fight this unconstitutional ban and ensure that women can access legal and safe abortion care, no matter their zip code. Tate Reeves echoed that sentiment Monday, tweeting "It's a great day in Mississippi" along with a picture of the signing.

Siri's behaviour becomes a privacy issue because it can read out messages and emails from third-party apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Gmail, even if an iPhone is locked. This is a serious bug since it effectively removes a layer of security.

Apple has confirmed that they are working towards solving the problem of Siri reading aloud hidden notifications on iPhones. Such design flaws in Digital Assistants will only make it more unsafe and thus override the usability. "We are aware of this issue and it will be addressed in an upcoming software update". Apple has not given any comment on this issue.
