Last week we heard about a bug in the fingerprint recognition on the Samsung Galaxy S10, the bug would let anyone with a gel type screen protector unlock the device using any fingerprint.
Now Samsung has released an official statement, they are working on a fix, although they are saying that you should not use these types of screen protectors with the handsets.
This issue involved ultrasonic fingerprint sensors unlocking devices after recognizing 3-dimensional patterns appearing on certain silicone screen protecting cases as users’ fingerprints.
To prevent any further issues, we advise that Galaxy Note10/10+ and S10/S10+/S10 5G users who use such covers to remove the cover, delete all previous fingerprints and newly register their fingerprints.
If you currently use front screen protective covers, to ensure optimum fingerprint scanning, please refrain from using this cover until your device has been updated with a new software patch.
As yet we do not have details on when the software update and fix for this issue will land, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
