The company has said that the phones' in-display fingerprint scanners suffer from a critical security vulnerability, an issue that needs to be resolved by replacing the fingerprint registered on the devices.
Over the last week, several S10 and Note 10 users reported that the Qualcomm-powered Ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner of their phones worked even when used by an unauthorized person.
The problem raised major alarms, with media outlets detailing that the issue stems from certain silicone screen protectors, which, being pliable, capture the fingerprint of an authorized user and use it whenever pressure is applied.
"A software update is planned to be released as early as next week, and once updated, please be sure to scan your fingerprint in its entirety, so that all portions of your fingerprint, including the center and corners have been fully scanned."
While the issue in Samsung flagships is scary, it is worth noting this is not the only biometric issue that has surfaced over the last few days.
A recent report from BBC flagged that Google Pixel 4's Face Unlock can work even when the authorized user is asleep. This meant that anyone with physical access to your phone could unlock it while you're sleeping.
