iOS7 control center is helpful to hackers, too

The control center was introduced into iOS7  to be more helpful, but Apple didn’ t think about how it would be helpful for thiefs and hackers, as well. With the ease to turn on and off Airplane mode, hackers can hide the phone from Find my iPhone apps long enough to mess with the phone to break in. There are many different ways to complete this, including making a finger print replica. The control center idea was good, but maybe it should have been though out more.
