Samsung says will soon patch Galaxy S10 fingerprint recognition problem

Samsung says will soon patch Galaxy S10 fingerprint recognition problem

Lisa quickly found out that the device could be unlocked using any of her digits, and worse yet, her husband had no problem doing the same even though none of his prints were registered prior to acquiring the unnamed £2.70 ($3.45) screen protector.

Samsung will fix a nasty bug that has caused all kinds of problems with the fingerprint sensor on the company's Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, according to a new report.

A user in the United Kingdom told the Sun newspaper earlier this week her Samsung device could be unlocked by someone else simply by putting on a screen protector and applying an unregistered fingerprint.

If you are anxious about the fault for now, you should use more traditional forms of unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S10 until the fix has arrived.

It certainly was the case last week that the Dolphins moved the ball better with Fitzy under center than a struggling Rosen. Rosen, meanwhile, has 58 of his 109 goals for 567 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions in five games (three starts).


South Korea's online-only KaKaobank has told customers to stop using the Galaxy 10 fingerprint recognition function to log into its services until the issue is resolved.

Samsung didn't provide any timeframe for the rollout of this security patch, but until it arrives, Galaxy S10 users can use face unlock for biometric authentication. The Galaxy S11 won't be the first Samsung phone to have a 20:9 screen because the current Galaxy A70 and A80 have already implemented the same.

Samsung responded by saying that it's investigating the issue and advised customers to only use official Samsung screen protectors. It's actually longer and we can expect other upcoming Samsung phones will also follow. After attaching the protector, it was discovered that the woman could unlock the phone with her unregistered left thumb.
