The story with the "flopping" fingerprint scanners on the flagships of Samsung is gaining momentum. Upon hearing
Recall, in practice, users found thatthe usual cheap film gives full access to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10: ultrasonic fingerprint scanners are beginning to take any fingerprint for the correct one. That is, the device will be unlocked for anyone who wants it, and he will get access to correspondence, pictures, personal data of the user and even banking applications.
Apparently, banks have learned about this problem andtook protection measures against hacking. Users write on the Reddit forum that some banks have begun blocking their applications for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10.
For example, the British NatWest (National Westminster Bank) has blocked its Google Play application for these models. Other banks have disabled fingerprint authentication.
True, not all banks came to such a decision, and only in some countries.
Samsung, in turn, promises to release an update and “fix” the scanners. In the meantime, users are advised to switch to good old codes and graphic keys.
