Samsung came up with a way to increase the security of the fingerprint scanner by 2,500,000,000 times
South Korean technology giant Samsung has found a new way to improve the security of the fingerprint scanner, to put it mildly, by several orders of magnitude.
Here's What We Know
The new technology concerns fingerprint scanners integrated into the display area. Such sensors are capable of reading only one fingerprint at a time, but the division of Samsung Display plans to develop a scanner that will recognize multiple fingerprints at once.
The corresponding technology should be created within two years. It is expected to be built on the basis of a solution for next-generation OLED 2.0 displays. Samsung will start introducing the new development in 2025.
It is noted that the new scanner will be able to read three fingerprints simultaneously. This will increase the security of user authentication by 2.5 billion times. Another advantage of the technology will be that it will be possible to attach a finger to any point on the screen, and not to a specific part, as it happens now.
