Products that aren't certified by Samsung can mess with the fingerprint recognition system, but in a way we didn't see coming. Her husband's fingerprint was then able to unlock the phone, even though it wasn't registered on the flagship. The implication here was that some third-party screen protectors might make fingerprint recognition harder or impossible.

The issue came to light when a British user named Lisa complained that her S10 unlocked from her left hand, even though she never registered the fingerprints of her left hand.

Samsung is aware of this massive security issue, and it's working on a patch.

Patterns of certain protectors included with silicone phone cases can be recognized with fingerprints, the South Korean phone-maker noted, and KaKaobank, an online bank in the country, advised owners to turn off S10 fingerprint recognition until the patch arrives. Not only will someone else need to get a hold of your device, but they'll have to install an unsupported screen protector to then attempt to break into your phone. The Samsung Galaxy S11 probably won't go quite that far, but it might have a 20:9 screen.

Which authentication method do you prefer on your phone?

Samsung didn't say exactly what the problem is, but it can apparently be fixed with some sort of software update. Plastic or silicon screen protectors can stymie it, so Samsung has been recommending that buyers used approved protective devices.
