Samsung Has Confirmed a Glaring S10 Fingerprint Reader Flaw and Promised Fix

The users of Samsung Galaxy S10 should be turned on due to the addition of some alternative security features because Samsung now is working to address a crucial fault with the in-screen fingerprint sensor of the device. This electronic giant has noted this issue today when a British user reported for it. The user objected about the ability to unlock the device with an unregistered fingerprint.

This fault was discovered when the manufacturers placed a $3.50 solid screen protector on this device and confirmed that adding one could add an air gap which impede this ultrasonic scanner. The Samsung Company kept that as a statement and told the media that they were aware of this case of the malfunctioning fingerprint of Samsung S10 and they will issue software patch as soon as possible.

Also several third party companies which include the Korean bank named KaKaoBank have advised the users to turn off the reader until the problem is properly addressed. It certainly has appeared to be a logical course of action till the next software update arrives.

When this brand new model hit the entire market in March, the Samsung Company touted that their industry possess one of the most secure biometric features and also they noted that it was properly engineered to be more secured than a 2D traditional optical scanner, plus it was the first Ultrasonic Fingerprint ID of the industry with high quality sensors embedded in display.

Samsung has strictly warned against the proper utilization of screen protectors in the past. However, this ability to fool the users with a cheap mobile accessory clearly represents a major as well as an unexpected security concern for the Galaxy users.
