Your Samsung Galaxy S8’s iris scanner can be hacked using a simple photo !

To ease the unlocking of smartphone and increasing security Samsung added iris scanner in it’s Galaxy S8 series while the S8 line also includes a more conventional fingerprint scanner, Samsung gives users the option to unlock their phones using a quick iris scan as well. Some people were concerned that the technology Samsung used might be open to being tricked by a photo of a user’s eyes, and those worries ended up being completely justified. We came to know that a group of security experts have actually hacked the iris scanner of S8 using nothing more than a photograph and a contact lens.

Samsung however stated that they are investigating in this matter but according to me Samsung should have taken care of this issue in it’s testing time itself.
