The new iPhone 5S fingerprint feature is leaving some worried about security

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The iPhone 5-S isn't even on store shelves yet, but it already has some people nervous about privacy concerns.

They stem from the phone's new feature which will allow people to lock and unlock their phones using their fingerprints.

Apple Officials say the info is stored in your phone and not in their servers.

This way, the fingerprints will not be stored on any database and will be safe from hackers.

The new iPhone goes on sale Friday, September 20th.
