Grayshift iPhone spyware Secretly Log Passcode of Locked iPhones. Software called Hide UI, created by Grayshift, previously unknown to the public doesn’t have to crack the code that people use to unlock their phones. It just has to log the code as the user types it in.
This spyware tool, it’s a software that secretly tracks users, has been available for about a year but this is the first time details of its existence have been reported, in part because of the non-disclosure agreements police departments sign when they buy a device from Grayshift known as GrayKey.
This screenshot showed a message on the screen of the iPhone X stating that Hide UI also disables airplane mode and prevents anyone from wiping the device.
