Bragging man, "I just got my 4S, look at what I can do." "Siri..."
Jealous coworker, ".....email Folder titled 'pornography' to Mom."
Siri, "email sent. Anything else?"
Jealous coworker, " Google search 'Top 10 beastiality sex tours' and forward results to WIFE. Reset iPhone to default settings. Confirm."

If you haven't set a passcode, you know what else a person can do with your locked iPhone? Unlock it! Then they can do all kinds of stuff!

So, seriously, I don't see what the big deal is.

Yeah, honestly, I think it's worth noting that there is a setting to allow Siri to work even with a passcode, but if you don't have one, why wouldn't you want or expect Siri to work?

you have missed the point, siri can still be used even when a password is active for ease of access unless you you change the siri access setting to off on the password access settings

This feature should be a default or at least you should be asked if you want Siri access password protected during setup.

And you have missed his point. If you've taken the time to set a passcode then surely you saw the option to disable Siri when locked right in the same menu.

Then he should have said that.
