The Galaxy S10 fingerprint scanner works by sending ultrasounds to identify the 3D ridges of the user's fingerprint. Samsung says this helps recognize the user quickly. However, a bug was identified in the fingerprint sensor. A Samsung Galaxy S10 user in Britain complained to the Sun earlier this week that a bug on her smartphone unlocked it quickly, regardless of the user.

Going further into the details, the British complainant said that when she bought a third-party screen protector online, her husband could unlock her Samsung Galaxy S10 with his fingerprint. However, her husband's fingerprint was not even registered.

Samsung Galaxy S10 users were then notified on South Korea's Kakao (an internet platform with messaging services) to switch off the fingerprint recognition on their smartphones. Samsung has requested the users to not use the fingerprint scanner until the issue is resolved.
