Galaxy S7 fingerprint scanner remembers your member

Good news, folks: Samsung Galaxy S7 owners can unlock their phones using their tallywackers, apparently.

The discovery was made by a Reddit user – aptly named /u/meatwad75892 – who posted his findings online, strictly in the name of science.

“Boredom and curiosity got the best of me. Tonight I discovered that you can successfully register and unlock a Galaxy S7 with a penis as a ‘fingerprint’,” Meatwad revealed, writing on Reddit’s Android board.

“I couldn’t think of a more relevant subreddit, and hopefully this isn’t against the rules, but I had to get this info out there,” he continued.

“So if you’re just as curious as I was and happen to have a Y chromosome, turn your junk upside down and give it a shot,” Meatwad added.

We have no plans to independently verify Meatwad’s claims. Honest.

In all seriousness, it’s highly likely that Meatwad’s findings are accurate. After all, any sufficiently fleshy, textured body part should satisfy a smartphone fingerprint scanner. However, we’re not so sure scanning the sausage will be as secure as the trusty old fingerprint.

Do you plan to try this at home? If you do, don’t tell anyone about it on the internet. It’s weird.
