Researchers have found a way to hack into your smartphone and figure out sensitive "pin" numbers.
Turns out, there is a way to secretly record what pin you're trying to enter by using the device's built-in cameras and microphones.
The research at the University of Cambridge is meant to discover and exploit holes in cyber-security before criminals do the same thing.
A paper published, last Thursday, explains the flaw and suggests ways programmers could close fix the problem and enhance security.
