The Galaxy S10’s Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner Has Been Fooled

  • Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner on Samsung Galaxy S10 can be tricked into unlocking the device

The individual (nicknamed darkshark) apparently took a photo of his fingerprint on a wineglass and ran it through Photoshop for a viable 3D model base.

Samsung's new flagship device touts what the company considers to be one of the most advanced and secure fingerprint scanners on the market, but it has been fooled by a 3D printed fingerprint.

Samsung's Galaxy S10 virtual fingerprint sensor might have a security problem.

Imgur user Darkshark was able to trick the in-display fingerprint reader in the Galaxy S10 by creating a 3D printed version of his own fingerprint.

After preparing the model in 3D printing software, it was ready to print on an accurate AnyCubic Photon LCD resin printer.

In a comment on his post, Darkshark said that he needed to make three fingerprint reprints to get the ridges on the fingerprint right.

To recall, this is not the first time a smartphone has been duped; the iPhone X, when launched, could be unlocked by showing a 3D print mask.

"If I steal someone's phone, their fingerprints are already on it". In both situations, the test phone that played footage of the tester's face was smudged, rife with fingerprints and dirt, and held a few inches away from the S10's screen. Tech website SmartWorld (via Android Police) went one step further, posting in March that they used a photograph to successfully unlock a Galaxy S10. However, the more money you're willing to spend, the better features you get. Additionally, a user's twin unlocked the iPhone X easily.

However, it's almost impossible for all biometric security features to be completely safe from getting duped.

The sensor on the Galaxy S10 uses ultrasonic technology to identify a person's fingerprint, compare it to the fingerprint on file, and provide access when there's a match.
