    Don't know if anyone else has seen this but there appears to be a security bug with the control panel.

    Interesting. Tbh I never used to have a passlock anyways but the little bigs are something we shall hear about over the next few days.

    There is actually a lock screen bug also, I watched a video this morning showing entering a password twice wrong and then automatically let you in

    You can disable the control panel on the lock screen.

    Settings > Control panel > Access on lock screen

    Then toggle it off

    Yes, the video link I posted tells you that unfortunately doing that seems to stop you using the Control Panel altogether so I guess I will have to wait for them to fix it before switching it all back on

    No, the Control Panel still works once you're into the home screen.
