The facial recognition system in the latest flagship of Samsung turns out to be a complete failure. We will unlock the Galaxy S10 with a photo of the user. Even those shown on another smartphone.
Not that I feel particularly surprised by the level of this type of security. Samsung himself warns that face recognition in the Galaxy S10 is not the safest method and it is worth using a fingerprint reader. Nevertheless, I think that with the amount you need to pay for the smartphone, the creators could try for a slightly more effective solution. See for yourself.
Galaxy S10 is not so safe
The face recognition tool in the latest flagship model of the South Korean technology giant is hard to call effective. This is a simple solution that has at best to support the basic option in the form of a fingerprint reader.
Biometrics, specifically the fingerprint scanner, is one of the best in its category. Of course, it has "humors", but it is a relatively new tool that will be fine-tuned over time.
On the Unbox Therapy channel there is a movie that clearly shows the helplessness of face recognition in the Galaxy S10 model from Samsung. A moment later, the case was already confirmed by a large group of other rapporteurs.
The mentioned video material included the possibility of unlocking the Galaxy S10 with a photo / video of the user. This questions the effectiveness of the system. The question is, is this a sufficient reason to describe S10 as insufficiently secured equipment?
Your friends may be the biggest threat
It sounds a bit exaggerated, but the truth is that if a device is lost or stolen by a stranger, face recognition may be effective. A person who acquired our S10 without knowing our identity will not be able to unlock the device .
The problem may be friends who come up with the idea of making a joke or copying our private notes or photos. The perpetrator, having our pictures or a film with our image, will not get into the device much more easily.
