Samsung Galaxy S10 gets an important security update

galaxy s10 security update

When the Korean company announced the Galaxy S10 series back in February, the Galaxy S10 series became one of the first mobile phones by the smartphone-maker which featured an in-display fingerprint sensor. Most Galaxy S10 owners love their phones but some had complained about the fingerprint sensor being slow and inaccurate. Well, Samsung has now released an update in an attempt to mitigate the issue.

The update was specifically for the S10 and S10+.  Samsung was not very clear about what the security patch entails but what they did say was that it is ‘urgent’ and that the update covers a ‘biometrics security patch.’

Earlier this month, a security researcher was able to get past the Galaxy S10’s fingerprint scanner by using a 3D copy of a fingerprint. This created a modest outrage among the Galaxy S10 owners. Although, it is unclear whether the update released by Samsung addresses this issue, the ‘urgent’ update is important for the security of the phone.

There have been reports which have said that the update has impacted the speed of scanner which feels faster than before. The update is available via the Galaxy Store app.
