VIDEO: Smartphone fingerprint sensors fooled

A sensor manufacturer has demonstrated how a feign finger can dope a smartphone’s fingerprint sensor during a counter during a Mobile World Congress tech show.

Vkansee, that manufactures high-resolution fingerprint readers, told a BBC that lower-resolution sensors could be fooled by fingers done of modelling clay.

The BBC’s Chris Foxx asked a Chinese company’s boss either criminals would unequivocally take a time to make a cover of a victim’s finger to counterpart it.
