SAMSUNG has admitted millions of customers are at risk after The Sun exposed a security flaw in its flagship new phone.
We told how mum Lisa Neilson, 34, found anyone could access her Galaxy S 10 using their thumbprint when she fitted a £ 2. 70 screen protector which she bought on eBay.
South Korean giant Samsungannounced a software update to fix the problem.
It came as finance firm KakaoBank told customers to stop using fingerprint recognition to log into its services.
The Galaxy S 10 was launched in March and more than 16 million handsets have been sold.
Samsung said it was “aware of malfunctioning fingerprint recognition and will soon issue a software patch”.
But the couple who exposed the problem blasted the company for not acting quickly enough.
Lisa’s husband Wes, of Castleford, West Yorks, said: “We rang them weeks ago – and still haven’t had an apology or explanation.

“On their website they offer up to $ 200, 000 to anyone who finds a serious security bug. I’d say this was serious but they’ve not offered us a cent.
“Just a couple of days ago they told us it was not down to them because it was a third party product causing the problem.”
