If you have a Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10 device, you run the risk of a security breach. Some users noticed a failure in the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that comes on the screen of these devices, as this can be tricked with unregistered fingerprints. And a third-party silicone screen protector to unlock the tools and to authenticate payments.

For this reason, Samsung reported that it will update the software to protect the security and privacy of users who have these two smartphone models, and will do so the following week. While that is happening, the company suggests users remove the silicone screen protectors from their devices, then delete and re-register their fingerprints and wait for the system update.

This problem involved ultrasonic fingerprint sensors that unlock devices after recognizing three-dimensional patterns. That appears in some instances of silicone screen protection as user fingerprints, Samsung said in a statement.

It is not the first time that the company's equipment has failed. Before Galaxy Note 7 was at risk of catching fire spontaneously and even warned that it could explode.
