Galaxy S10 face unlock tricked by a video of the phone's owner

Samsung Galaxy S10 Face Recognition Can Easily Be Bypassed

I hope you have a drink and snack ready, because our Samsung Galaxy S10 tips and tricks video is here and it's insanely long. Security Researcher Jane Wong was able to unlock her brother's phone with her face. Well there's no space for the required sensors to carry this out in the Galaxy S10's design, with the front camera (s) embedded into the screen, rather than in a notch.

Additionally, both The Verge and Unbox Therapy's Lewis Hilsenteger were able to unlock Samsung's Galaxy S10 using a simple video with the face of the device's owner, a method to circumvent the face unlock that seems to have the highest percentage of success among the three we've already mentioned.

The issue with all these facial recognition systems implemented in current commercial products is that they don't perform any type of 3D depth scans of the tested face, but merely look at the position of the eyes, nose, or mouth to authorize a person and unlock a device -hence the reason majority can be bypassed by flashing photos or videos in front of their cameras. "If you usually wear glasses, you might want to keep them on while you set up Face recognition". A study by a Dutch non-profit previous year found that investigators could bypass face unlock-type of features on 42 out of the 110 smartphones they tested.
