3D-printed fingerprint able to fool the Galaxy S10's sensor

Samsung Galaxy S10 has some serious security concerns

After making a cute of attempts and tweaking the process, darkshark was finally able to print a version of his fingerprint that unlocked his Galaxy S10.

Samsung's Galaxy S10 series, introduced earlier this year, has been the most high-profile Android phone launched with an in-display fingerprint reader.

From start to finish, the user said it only took him about 15 minutes to create the fake fingerprint before he was able to successfully unlock the phone.

According to his post, darkshark took a picture of his fingerprint off of a wine glass, processed it in Photoshop, and modelled it in 3DS Max to get a 3D printable version of it. In 2016, Police officers used a 3D printer to get into the phone of a murder victim, while a cybersecurity firm used a $150 face mask beat Apple's FaceID on an iPhone X in 2017.

The user's claims have yet to be verified and, so far, Samsung hasn't commented on the findings. "There's nothing stopping me from stealing your fingerprints without you ever knowing, then printing gloves with your fingerprints built into them and going and committing a crime".

'If I steal someone's phone, their fingerprints are already on it. So for those with the S10, it may be a good idea to avoid using facial or fingerprint recognition and rely on a PIN or the "challenge" shape features to unlock your phone for the time being, in order to make sure your information is as secure as possible.

While all that is true, they are more secure since they're using a 3D map instead of a simple image of the fingerprint, that doesn't mean they're not vulnerable to hackers, and people who have the time to actually fool them - 13 minutes of time, by the way.

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