This Siri bug reveals your hidden messages when your iPhone is l

New Ipad Rumors 2018

However, a Mac Magazine reader discovered that Siri will read the content of most messages even though the content is hidden on the display.

A privacy bug reported by Brazilian site Mac Magazine allows someone to access hidden message notifications on a locked iPhone by asking Siri to read them ... However, third party apps like WhatsApp, Skype and Telegram are vulnerable to this issue.

Even if lock screen previews are turned off, Siri will still read the content in notifications aloud from third-party email and messaging apps.

iOS 11 conveniently now lets you hide notification content, giving you the message sender's name, but masking the details. Saying things like "Read my last email" and "Read my last note" lead to Siri insisting that you unlock your phone before the voice assistant can follow through on the request since it associates those asks with Apple's software. We tried again and again to get Siri to read texts, but it demanded we unlock our iPhones first.

John Oliver's children's book about Mike Pence's bunny sells out
In addition, all proceeds of the Last Week Tonight book go to non-profit organizations the Trevor Project and Aids United. Oliver chose to publish his own book to troll Pence, who has endorsed controversial policies opposing gay marriage.

Until Apple rectifies this, you can avoid any potential privacy snooping by turning off lock screen notifications for sensitive apps.

The only notifications that Siri doesn't seem to be willing to blab about are those from Apple's native Messages app.

The Verge also confirmed that the bug affects third-party messaging apps like Slack or Facebook Messenger. iMessage and Apple's app are reported to be safe. Go to Settings Siri & Search and toggle Allow Siri When Locked to off.
