Using your voice to unlock a phone sounds cool, but for some security professionals that\u2019s a security trade-off they\u2019re unwilling to make.On Tuesday, one researcher discovered the downside of the Trusted Voice feature on Google\u2019s Pixel that could put devices at risk. The problem is, this feature is enabled by default, which is a change from previous releases.Dave Kennedy, the founder of TrustedSec and Binary Defense Systems, as well as the author of the Social Engineering Toolkit, discovered that he could play a recording of his own voice and use it to unlock his Google Pixel.He isn\u2019t the first to discover this, but the topic is worth revisiting.One of the concerns surrounding this feature is that someone who isn\u2019t familiar with the phone\u2019s settings could use their new Pixel for work. Any sensitive documents or data on the device could then be obtained with little to no effort on the part of an attacker.It isn\u2019t hard to record someone saying \u201cOK Google\u201d or possibly edit a recording of those two words together in order to unlock a device.It\u2019s worth noting that Trusted Voice has been around almost as long as \u201cOK Google\u201d has, as far as features on Android are concerned. However, not all devices support this function.In other versions, the option was disabled by default, but that isn\u2019t the case on new Pixel devices. Google does offer a warning during setup, but many consumers will overlook this in favor of finishing the process so they can use their device.On the screen where Trusted Voice is enabled, Google says the feature \u201ccan be less secure.\u201d\u201cA similar voice or a recording of your voice could unlock your phone. But after one attempt, you must unlock your phone another way,\u201d the warning states.The one-and-done aspect of this login attempt is a decent protection scheme, but again - it doesn\u2019t stop someone from simply recording a person using this feature as normal, and playing it back later.Kennedy posted a video showing Trusted Voice in action.If this feature is a concern, the fix is rather basic.Go into settings (within the Google App, press the menu icon at the top left of the screen). From there, go to Voice, and disable \u201cOK Google\u201d detection. If Trusted Voice is disabled, the user will be prompted to unlock the device each time \u201cOK Google\u201d is used with the screen lock enabled.Again, this isn\u2019t a massive vulnerability, or earth shattering security problem. It\u2019s a trade-off between security and convenience. But it\u2019s a feature that administrators should be aware of as new Android devices enter the workplace.
