Samsung has recognized a problem with fingerprint scanners in the Galaxy S10 series smartphones. The essence of the scandal that erupted with renewed vigor is that some cheap protective films allow you to unlock your smartphone with any fingerprint.
Simply put, anyone can take a smartphone and access all the information on it, even if such a fingerprint has not been registered. A similar problem is observed in the autumn flagship series Galaxy Note10.
Now the Korean company has promised journalists of several publications to release a software update, which should patch this security hole.
A Samsung spokesman noted that the company is currently conducting an internal study of the problem, but for now recommends that all smartphone owners use only authorized accessories specifically designed for Samsung products.
