Just like the release of iOS 4, iOS 5 and iOS 6.1 a new nifty little trick has been discovered to get around the lock screen giving ANYONE access into your photos, emails, twitter and messages.
If you want to replicate this loophole for yourself here are the steps:
1: Swipe up on the lock screen to access your iOS Control Centre
2: Open the Alarm Clock application and hold down the power button bringing up the power off option
3: Tap ‘cancel’ whilst quickly double tapping the home button to launch the Multi Tasker
4: click any app and you’re in….
If you want to protect yourself from this exploit you just need to disable Control Centre from your Lock Screen via the Settings.
