    A hi-tech padlock secured with a fingerprint can be opened by anyone with a smartphone, security researchers have found.

    On its website, Tapplock is described as the "world's first smart fingerprint padlock".

    But researchers said it took just 45 minutes to find a way to unlock any Tapplock.

    In response, the firm acknowledged the flaw and said it was issuing "an important security patch".

    In a blogpost, security expert Andrew Tierney from Pen Test Partners (PTP), outlined how he had hacked the lock.
