Hey modders, devs, and hackers! You know how you keep that “USB Debugging” option checked in settings? Sure, it’s useful when you need to root a device or test an app you’re developing, but you might want to consider unchecking it when not using it.
XDA developer M.Sabra says that anyone with a little ADB knowledge can easily hack Android’s pattern unlock, essentially getting access to your entire device. Apparently it’s not that difficult to do either. Root isn’t even required.
We won’t go into detail here on how to do it, but hit the source link to find out how easily your phone can get hacked if you lose it. Don’t believe your pattern gives you total protection.
