Samsung Galaxy S10 Facial Recognition Easily Defeated [Video]

Samsung's new Galaxy S10 has a facial recognition feature to secure your device; however, you may want to think twice before using it.

Unbox Therapy discovered that the Galaxy S10 could easily be fooled into unlocking the screen using just a video off YouTube. Unlike Face ID, it was unable to determine that the face presented was not real.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 features in-display fingerprint unlock and face unlock. After some testing I'd suggest using fingerprint unlock exclusively. The simple hack in this video defeats the face unlock security. If convenience is your priority face unlock will work but understand the potential consequences.

Take a look at the video below!
