It is apparently easy to fool the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner in Samsung’s latest Galaxy S10 as a user posted on Imgur that he able to unlock the smartphone with a 3D print of his fingerprint.

Notably, the new Galaxy S10’s fingerprint scanner uses an ultrasonic sensor and doesn’t rely on a capacitive fingerprint scanner that’s been used in other versions of the phone. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is supposed to be more difficult to spoof.

“The user took a picture of his fingerprint on a wineglass, processed it in Photoshop, and made a model using 3ds Max that allowed him to extrude the lines in the picture into a 3D version.

“After a 13-minute print (and three attempts with some tweaks), he was able to print out a version of his fingerprint that fooled the phone’s sensor,” The Verge reported late on Sunday.

This is not the first time that such an instance has been reported.
