Quick question about Rubber Ducky on anrdoid/iOS devices

by Whenitallcomes / November 24, 2016 5:53 PM PST

Although i was given very detailed information of how it works, i failed to understand if can be used to crack Android/iOS passwords if the phone screen is locked. I searched information in the web and i only came to an article, claming it takes 16 hours for the rubber ducky to crack 4digit lockscreen PINCODE. I once left my phone locked with PASSWORD for time period of about an hour. The phone was Xperia z3 if thats gonna help?

Haha really good one, it made the day Happy Well i will consider that danger as minimal as well since i cant find any info of someone using the ducky that way. It seems that they are less intrusion methods for android and ios, Windows obviously remains the top playground for hackers outhere, which is logical.. Okey, for now that's it, i have more security questions but i will open separate threads for them, lets take a rest for a day.. Thanks again for the help to you and the other forum members that helped in the previous threads,.

In fact, if you want to hear something funny but true, a friend of mine managed to steal his girlfriend's passwords by placing a tiny camera on a place on the top of the desk that war recording. She she types slowly he than found her pc lockscreen password and some other password. Ever since i was told about that, i alaways check the surroundings when i open my laptop..

One of my jobs in the past was in a CCTV company. Not installing, design of the actual gear. Today, video cameras are too cheap a solution.
