Moto G5 Plus "Prime Exclusive" edition with a major security drawback

Moto G5 Plus
All current Amazon Prime Exclusive deals

Most Amazon users have heard about its "Prime Exclusive Phones" program. In case you haven't, essentially it's a selection of phones, sold by the company at a significantly lower price. But there is one catch - all devices come with lockscreen Amazon offers and ads. Twitter user by the name of Jaraszski Colliefox got another "exclusive" feature as well - a way to break through the lock screen of his Moto G5 Plus without entering a password or fingerprint.

It's Amazon with their replacement login screen, so Amazon can do their ads on the lockscreen or the G5. This doesn't happen to any other G5 or G5 plus. How about mentioning that fact PhoneArena.
