Samsung is keeping its promise to close the vulnerability of fingerprint scanners. The technology company warns owners of Galaxy S10, S10 +, Note 10 and Note 10+ that they will send a “24-hour” patch notification (much less time than reading) to anyone who has registered a fingerprint digital device.
You will find a solution before the weekend. Samsung also asks anyone who has used the phone with a screen protector to erase and re-record their prints without the protective film installed, which may contain “incorrect” information.
If you receive the update, you can not work around it – the notification will remain active until you install the update.
It’s a quick answer, although it’s probably a necessary answer. Theoretically, everyone could unlock the S10 or the Note 10 if a cheap screen was installed on the phone. The update was designed to ensure that Samsung’s cell phones look for a finger on the glass and not finger-like textures.
Even if the probability of an intruder discovering the error was not so great, it clearly undermined Samsung’s security aspirations and had consequences. Many banks have even deleted fingerprint archiving support as a precaution. If Samsung did not fix this quickly, the turmoil could have intensified.
