Samsung Bug Allows Everyone to Open Galaxy S10 with fingerprint

Samsung is one of the best smartphone makers but on and off it comes across different problems, either smartphone catching fire or getting attacked by bugs. This time Galaxy S10 has witnessed another security flaw that allowed the device to be unlocked by people who did not have their fingerprints registered. This Samsung Bug is quite annoying as it is perfectly compromising the security.

A girl reported that her husband was able to unlock the device even when his fingerprints were not registered on the phone. After receiving some complaints, Samsung as acknowledged the issue and has assured that soon this malicious bug will be fixed.

Samsung bug that lets unregistered fingerprints unlock the Galaxy S10 Will Be Fixed Soon

While telling about the issue, Samsung said that:

The issue can happen when “patterns of some screen protectors that come with silicone phone cases are recognized along with fingerprints.”

As this bug allows anyone to access your S10 with a third-party screen protector, so the company has asked its customers to stop using the fingerprint sensor to use this service until the company releases a software patch. This is not the first time we have come across such a privacy issue at Samsung’s end. The facial recognition feature of Samsung can also be faked easily.

Anyway, this facial recognition issue will be updated in the upcoming Android 10 Update.
