Samsung Galaxy S10 has the worst face unlock flaw

LONDON: Face unlock is the security mode that many smartphones feature today. While most brands have a simple face unlocking mechanism that senses a lot of parameters before unlocking the phone, it is not as secure as the fingerprint sensor. However, Apple had shown the world that face unlocking can be highly secure and confidently removed the TouchID sensor, just to show that the face unlocking mechanism on the iPhone X series can really prove Apple’s point. Samsung used a different type of unlocking, called retina scanning, which is meant to be highly secure too. And we have seen these in the 2018 models.

The 2019 Samsung Galaxy S10 series shows no signs of the retina scanning (iris scanner), and relies completely on the fingerprint scanner and face unlocking mechanism. And with the smartphones out for a review with almost every techie out there, many have been goofing around with the new flagships, just to shockingly find out that the Galaxy flagships are unlocking themselves with mere 2D photos and videos.

Not only photos, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S10 flagships are also having confusion with recognizing siblings as the owners.
