New iOS 7 Bug Allows to Disable 'Find My iPhone' Feature Without Password

A new bug has been recently discovered that allows to disable Find My iPhone feature on devices running iOS 7.0.4 without typing in a password. What that means is that if someone steals your iPhone, you won’t be able to find it. A thief can deactivate the tracking feature within two or three minutes. Take a look at the video below.

MacRumors reporters were among the first to spot the vulnerability. Here’s what they write:

Deactivating Find My iPhone takes just a few simple steps and it can be easily repeated on devices running the current version of iOS (7.0.4). The exploit involves making a few simple changes to the iCloud account section of the Settings app.

However, it appears that Apple is already aware of the bug since it is impossible to repeat the trick on the iPhone running the latest iOS 7.1 beta. Looks like it makes sense to update, huh?
