Samsung has admitted that the Galaxy S10 model has a defect that allows all fingerprints to unlock the devices when a gel film on the screen is applied to them and does not have to be "special" – it costs £ 2.7 on websites. such as eBay (equivalent to 3.13 euros). The error was discovered by a British user when her husband was able to unlock the smartphone with an unregistered fingerprint.
According to BBC the brand has already promised an update to solve the problem, although At the launch of the model in March this year, the on-screen fingerprint authentication system was a highlight of the presentation.
KaKao Bank, a South Korean online bank, suggested that all users turn off this option until the technology releases the software update that solves the problem. The English channel also reports that there had previously been situations where some screensavers were not compatible with Samsung models, leaving a small air gap that disturbed the sensor reading the user's commands.
