The write up has been framed properly about the security threat that IOS users are facing due to the Siri lockscreen Bypass. To know about the details of the threat, one must give a read.

Silly
There really does need to be a better balance here.  on the one hand, I don't want to have to unlock my device to use the voice assistant every time I want to make a phone call or do a basic search.  On the other hand, "What's my name?" or "What's my email address?" on a locked device should yield no information without first having to unlock it.

Re: Voice Recognition or High Degree of Siri Granularity
If there were more options you could decide to not have any restrictions if you wanted...but for those who would choose to keep some information restricted that would be there as well. It's an option that would benefit both sides.

Re: Apple is correct
Another thing I just wanted to point out, I am wondering when we will start feeling more comfortable about our PII. Most are already available in Google with our picture attached, I wonder what would Siri tell us that others not already knowing? :--))

Re: Voice Recognition or High Degree of Siri Granularity
 I agree mainly but I do not want Siri having restriction on information she could provide.

Re: Voice Recognition or High Degree of Siri Granularity
Agree, at the same time voice recognition could easily be compromised.

Re: Apple is correct
Agree, one other option would be a two factor authentication on Siri, so you have a key fob in your hand unless it is in closed proximity Siri on lock screen does not work.

Disable Siri on Lock Screen
Why is this not a reasonable solution? If you want it accessed by lock screen that simply means it is exposed to outside world. Unless there is real voice recognition which always work there is no alternative and that is not even secure. If you want to put a chip in your body so Siri can recognize you that is possible, that is not what I want tough. :--))

Re: Apple is correct
That is exactly what I thought. It is just like in business, you have to evaluate the risk and provide security accordingly. You are not going to have the same security on a Yugo as you would a Bugati.

Voice Recognition or High Degree of Siri Granularity
I think voice recognition software would be helpful not only to security but would most likely improve the functionality of Siri. But I think the cost behind that may be extensive. I think an easier option that may be more secure would be to add more granularity to Siri's Options in Settings. You could restrict what Siri has access to and by doing that you could ensure that certain data elements remain private. Currently the options for Siri are scarce.
