Most mobile users prefer to use extra scratch protection on their

phone in the form of a protective film. However, few of us know what this may actually mean from a security point of view. Here is a real life example of one Galaxy S10 user who was announced not so long ago ...

The updated line of Galaxy S10, presented inThis year, comes with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. Although this fingerprint scanner is first-class, it does not work very well with tempered glass screen protectors. But the fact is that many users can not use a smartphone without a protective film, so what then?

Accessory manufacturers use specialliquid glue to create a stronger seal between the protective protector and the display. In order not to encounter a similar problem as a user of the Galaxy S10, try not to buy a cheap protective film for 100-300 rubles.

So, one user of the Galaxy S10 recently received$ 3 gel protective film with eBay. After using it, it turned out that absolutely any fingerprint can unlock the phone. According to representatives of Samsung, this problem is already being investigated and investigated. Nevertheless, the company believes that this issue is connected with the cost of the protective film - 3 US dollars. Recall that earlier, Samsung warned the owners of the Galaxy S10 about the use of unofficial protective protectors and screens.

Samsung Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scannerworks by sending sound waves to the user's finger and reading the reflected waves. However, standard glass protectors create a small gap between the finger and the display. This reduces the impact of the fingerprint sensor.
