Samsung officially confirmed the technical issue. 

“We are investigating this issue and will be deploying a software patch soon,” a Samsung spokesperson said. “We encourage any customers with questions or who need support downloading the latest software to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.” the company said.

When the S10 was launched, in March, Samsung described the fingerprint authentication system as "revolutionary".
