Chrome’s incognito mode is flawed in latest iOS 7 update

In the most recent update to the Google Chrome app, it appears there is a flaw when using the “incognito mode”. This feature within the mobile web browser is designed to allow users to browse the web discretely. Searches and visited websites are not saved in your history, and all cookies are deleted as soon as you close the browser. In this update searches made in incognito are not deleted and will actually come up in your search history while using the standard browser. This is an odd bug to appear from tech giant Google even though there have always been questions about the security of incognito mode.

iOS7 Lock screen bug discovered for iPhone 5s

With the new iOS7 for Apple there are more new features and accessibility, but with this brings a new found problem.  The new lock screen feature gives the user too much access. There is a bug that can permit a stranger to gain access to your phone. From the lock screen, if you swipe up to access the control center you can select the alarm clock and from there hold the phone’s sleep button and then when it prompts you to shut down you cancel and then tap the home button and have access to the phone’s multi-tasking screen. This is a big issue because iOS7 loses all its’ security credibility. This issue only occurs on the new iPhone 5s and this is a major problem because they are promoting the fingerprint scanner and how it will give your phone much more security, but with this bug anyone can bypass the fingerprint scan.
