[Discussion] Underscreen fingerprint sensor for Mi9 unlocks with any fingerprint ...

So in case Xiaomi didn't see this, Samsung is having simmilar issues with their S10. When I saw the news about Samsung, I tried and tested this on my Mi9 and low and behold it unlocks with any of my fingers if I put the included silicone cover on top of the screen. Of course it doesn't work when the cover is not over the screen.

Any Mi9 users care to do the test? I bet all the Mi9 phones come with that thin silicone cover included in the box.


P.S. Also worth mentioning I have a screen protector on as well. I heard some screen protectors can cause this issue as well (seems it isn't the case with mine).

Here's some links that talk about the S10 issues:

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-50080586

Hope this is going to get fixed as well Xiaomi? Samsung issues a statement they'll fix it in a week or so.

I have tried with silicon case from my friends phone case, my case (which have grid grooves), card folder, laminate foil, tape and stretch foil. All was working with my assigned fingerprint, but non of them have fautly read other unassigned fingers as correct fingerprint.

many seasoned security people describe "fingerprint lock" a "convenience", as opposed to a "security" feature anyway.
