Below you can find info on how to manually remove the saved fingerprints from your Galaxy S10 device.
Fingerprint security is one of the most used featured of any new Samsung device that supports this function. The fingerprints aren't the main security you can use with the Galaxy S10, so you shouldn't rely on them too much.
If you're looking to remove the fingerprints you've previously saved on your device, or in case you're simply choosing to switch to other fingers, then this is the guide you can use. Also, if you're planning on selling your smartphone, then you should remove the saved fingerprints, as otherwise the other person will not be able to use the Galaxy S10.
Please note that the fingerprints on the Samsung Galaxy S10 can be fooled using 3d printers, as Samsung hasn't managed to improve the recognition scanner. We expect this to be solved only on future Galaxy S models. So, if you wish to keep your data safe, then you should change the saved fingerprints and use a single finger to access your device.
