Samsung to roll out Applications patch Following Galaxy S10 fingerprint Defect Found

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Thursday it will roll out a software patch to repair issues with fingerprint recognition on its own flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone.

A British consumer informed that the Sun newspaper this week that a bug on her Galaxy S10 let it be unlocked irrespective of the biometric information enrolled in the gadget.

After she purchased a third party display protector, her husband managed to unlock her telephone with his fingerprint, although it wasn’t registered.

The matter can occur when routines of several protections that include silicone telephone cases are recognized alongside fingerprints, the South Korean technology giant said in a note on its customer care program.

South Korea’s online-only KaKaobank has advised clients to discontinue using the Galaxy S10 fingerprint recognition function to log to its providers before the problem is solved.

Launched in March, Galaxy S10 series mobiles possess an in-display detector that uses ultrasound to discover the ridges of fingerprints, which Samsung has touted as a”groundbreaking” biometric authentication characteristic.
