Case Lets Any Fingerprint Unlock a Samsung Galaxy S10 Smartphone [Report]

Placing a £2.70 screen protector case on the Samsung Galaxy S10 lets any fingerprint unlock the device, reports BBC and The Sun.

Lisa Neilson, from Castleford, West Yorks, bought a case from eBay to prevent damage to her S10 display. To her surprise, after applying the protector, any fingerprint would unlock the device.

“Anyone can access it and could get into the financial apps and transfer funds,” said Neilson.

The issue appears to have been confirmed by Samsung who told BBC it is "aware of the case of S10's malfunctioning fingerprint recognition and will soon issue a software patch".

We'd advise Samsung users to disable fingerprint authentication until the software update is becomes available. Apparently, this issue also affects the Note10.

Cute how big a deal this is and yet no major coverage and lots wonderered why apple did not do in screen touch ID well guess this is why but you get use to face ID and was buggy on the x now works great but I knew people that got 8 plus instead then got xs max and loved it so 1 properly secure id system is better then 2 non secure.

Samsung advised disabling fingerprint? The face unlock feature is also compromised by a video or photo of your face! You’ll gonna end up using the old pattern unlock. Nice looking phone that doesn’t work!😂😂😂

Samsung said to use only authorized accessories. So there is such thing as authorized case and/or screen protector now? LOL
