Samsung has released a software patch to fix a security issue in relation to its fingerprint recognition feature according to a report by Android Central. For now, the update is only available in South Korea for Galaxy S10/10+ and Note 10/10+ smartphones. Meanwhile, S10e has not encountered the said issue since it uses a different type of fingerprint scanner. The brand promises to make the security patch available to other countries in the near future.
Samsung released a statement regarding this issue and explained that this happens when the fingerprint sensors recognizes other 3D patterns from the silicone screen protectors. As a temporary solution, the company advises its S10 and Note10 users to switch to the passcode unlock feature until their handsets receive the security patch.
