CNET has reported that a 6 year old girl recently used her sleeping mum’s fingerprint to unlock her phone and spend an estimated $250 dollars on Pokémon merchandise. The little girl named Ashlynd managed to seize the opportunity when her mum was napping on the couch.
Ashlynd’s mum initially thought that her Amazon account had been hacked when she discovered that 13 Pokémon items had been ordered, to later discover that it was her 6 year old daughter that had gone on a shopping spree using her account details.
The little girl was clearly on a mission to catch ’em all, and it looks like her mum might have to think of other ways to keep her from accessing her phone to avoid further splurges in the future!
