One UI 2.0 Beta 3 update is rolling out for the Galaxy S10 (Update: rolling out in US)

[Update: Fix out] Samsung will begin patching fingerprint scanner security flaw within 24 hours

Samsung really talked up the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S10 when it launched. It was supposed to be faster and more secure than other methods. We knew the first part wasn't true soon after launch, but we only found out how easy it was to fool the sensor a few days ago. Cheap screen protectors could allow any fingerprint to unlock the S10 and Note 10 phones, but Samsung promised a quick update.

[Update: Samsung statement] Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor reportedly rendered insecure by cheap accessory

According to a recent report making its rounds on the internet, the in-display fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy S10 doesn't offer much in the way of security if you are using the wrong accessories. For one UK couple using an inexpensive "gel" screen protector (or case, it isn't immediately clear which), their cheap accessory compromised the phone's fingerprint recognition capabilities by allowing any finger to unlock the phone, eliminating the security offered by the in-display reader.

New Windows 10 Insider build brings Link to Windows and screen mirroring to more Galaxy devices

New Windows 10 Insider build brings Link to Windows and screen mirroring to more Galaxy devices

Windows Insider is an open software testing program run by Microsoft offering pre-release builds of Windows 10 with new features (and bugs). Testers get to be on the bleeding edge, and Microsoft gets bug reports. It's a win-win situation for the most part and quite similar to beta programs run by Google and Samsung. A new build came out this week— version 18995 — and it brings to the table multiple Android-related goodies for Samsung owners. Insiders now have the Link to Windows feature on more devices, a screen mirroring feature called Phone screen, and a new paint job for the Your Phone desktop app.
