    I faced an issue on my OnePlus 7 pro with in display fingerprint sensor few days back. I had registered 5 fingerprints, meanwhile gave my phone to my friend and he was just messing with the fingerprint sensor and device got unlocked even though his fingerprints weren't registered. Gave my phone to other friend whose fingerprints are also not registered, to try unlocking and it got unlocked.

    So went to setting removed all the registered fingerprints and added just 2 fingerprints. Now it is working fine, however OnePlus must do something about it as it is the violation of user's privacy.

    Exactly what happend to my brother's OnePlus 7, he has a few fingerprints registered but not mine, and when I tried to unlock it, it was unlocked that easy, and happens everytime, I thought this was at least cuz we are brothers, but your saying that's your friends did that too.

    I'm so disappointed in OnePlus, and I'm surprised no one replied to your post.

    Yeah totally agreed, it is really disappointing that no one noticed it and took any action.

    Plot twist: no one from OP reads these forums.
