A few days ago, some Samsung Galaxy S10 units with glass or silicone-based screen protectors were discovered to have a vulnerability. The issue allows just anybody to access the device by unlocking it using a fingerprint. The Seoul-based tech and electronics giant responded to the latest issue by asking Samsung Galaxy S10 users not to use the said screen protectors and promised to roll out an update to fix the issue within the week.
With the recent issue of fingerprint vulnerability, some banking apps have already blacklisted the Samsung Galaxy S10. These apps are heavily reliant on fingerprint authentication and have now restricted Samsung Galaxy S10 users to download and install their apps from the Google Play Store. Others have disabled the option to use a fingerprint scanner as some kind of verification.
