Fingerprint reader became camera on Xiaomi model

This happened when the camera for the fingerprint reader on the Xiaomi model was launched. The user Xiaomi Mi 9T turned the fingerprint reader into a camera built into the screen.

Although it is used as a camera, the quality of the image provided by the fingerprint reader was very low. But a better fingerprint reader was perceived as a camera.

Many smartphone models use fingerprint readers. Even this equipment has become a criterion for many users. This equipment uses a fingerprint camera. Thus, user fingerprints can be used in blocking models.

However, information that this feature is used as a regular camera did not show itself. During the process, the user accessed the fingerprint reader using the Activity Launcher application, which he installed on his model. With this application, you can hide some apps on your phone screen.

You can see what the fingerprint camera sees by searching it in “activity launcher” app. from r/Xiaomi

The Xiaomi model contains video as the camera is used for the fingerprint reader. But this is not the only case. Because users who can use it as a camera can also access fingerprint data. This means that attackers can take advantage of this.

It is not yet clear whether Xiaomi is working on this explanation.
