Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Fail

Even though Samsung uses a "swipe" fingerprint sensor on their new Galaxy S5, the truth is that it is just as susceptible to spoofing as the Apple iPhone 5S "contact" sensor. The bigger deal for Samsung is that their fingerprint authentication does more than just unlock the phone - it can also be used for making Paypal payments among other things. This is not good and is a reason as to why you should stear clear of fingerprint technology on phones at this point.
