The Galaxy S10's face unlock fooled by pictures, siblings

The Galaxy S10's face unlock fooled by pictures, siblings

Here's another friendly reminder that, if your Android phone doesn't have some kind of special hardware for face unlock, the feature probably isn't very secure. Security Researcher Jane Wong was able to unlock her brother's phone with her face.

As Galaxy Club points out, a promotional page for Asphalt 9 puts the Galaxy A90 squarely in the company of all S10 variants, as well as the Note 9.

There are reports online claiming face unlock on the new Samsung Galaxy S10 isn't working as securely as expected, with news of handsets unlocking after scanning a face of someone other than the owner.

What's worth mentioning is that Samsung wouldn't use an Infinity O display like on the Galaxy S10, which is typically more expensive, as the camera wouldn't be embedded into the glass, but placed on a pop-up module.

If you were holding out hope that the facial recognition software would be more advanced or more secure on the new generation of Samsung phones, you're going to be disappointed.

As previously mentioned in the beginning, in 4 out of 10 smarthpones tested by the Dutch Consumentenbond face unlock was found to be useless being easily bypassed with a simple photo.

Otherwise, the update delivers Samsung's One UI Android skin in addition to Android Pie.
