Imgur user darkshark bypassed the security of the Galaxy S10 by starting from a move out of a movie - a photograph of a fingerprint on the side of a glass.
The author needs to fix his click bait headline. No a 3D print did not fool it. A very detailed, high end process with expensive printers and creating raised ridges fooled it. Not the average 3D printer form Best Buy.
Still a 3d printer, right?
lamest excuse for a poor headline ive ever seen.
how about being honest and saying
"That fancy in-screen fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 can be fooled by a fancy 3D print"
"That fancy in-screen fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10 can be fooled by a ridiculously expensive 3D print"
oh wait...that wont generate as many clicks now would it.
Nope looks like a cheap $500 printer did, NOT a $20,000+ industrial 3D printer
$500 is still not cheap. Also had to use 3D studio to create the model and even more. So unless someone is very tech savvy and is that desperate to get my photos and text, i think S10 owners are safe. And FaceID was fooled by a mask.
People should be aware that a finger print lock is a far less secure way of locking your phone than a pin. It's more for convenience than real security.
