Samsung pushes an urgent update for Galaxy S10’s fingerprint scanner

Samsung is rolling out an urgent update for the Galaxy S10’s fingerprint scanner. The company announced the latest flagship devices in February and the Galaxy S10 was Samsung’s first device with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The scanner has been working perfectly for the most part but apparently, someone managed to fool it last week using 3D fingerprints. The latest update is marked as a security update but doesn’t come with any update notes. However, there’s a strong possibility that Samsung made improvements to the sensor and patched the issues. According to GSMArena (via Neowin), the latest update makes the fingerprint scanner snappier and more responsive. Unfortunately, we don’t have access to a 3D printer or Samsung Galaxy S10 to test and confirm it.

That said, it’s always a good idea to download the new updates especially if they are marked as security updates. The size of the update is 6.9 MB and it is coming via pop-up notification from the Galaxy Store app.
