    Samsung to make fingerprint login 2.5bn times more secure in 2025

    How do you increase the security of fingerprint-based biometrics? Well, how about instead of using a small scanner that can read one fingerprint at a time, you make the entire OLED screen capable of scanning multiple fingerprints simultaneously? It may sound like something out of science fiction, but Samsung is working on this technology as we speak.

    And according to ISORG CEO during a recent interview, Samsung might have this technology ready for its OLED displays in just a couple of years.

    Samsung announced it is developing an All-in-One fingerprint sensing solution for the next-generation displays, i.e., OLED 2.0, at IMID a few months ago. This technology will allow Galaxy smartphones and tablets to read multiple fingerprints simultaneously through their OLED displays.

    Samsung to set a new standard for fingerprint security in 2025

    According to Samsung Display, using three fingerprints simultaneously for authentication is 2.5×10^9 (or 2,500,000,000) more secure than using just one fingerprint. On top of these obvious security benefits, Samsung's technology will work on the entire screen. Future Galaxy device users will no longer have to worry about placing their fingerprints in the right spot on the screen. With OLED 2.0 and this upcoming All-in-One fingerprint scanning solution, the entire screen can act as a fingerprint scanner.

    Samsung hasn't revealed exactly when it will have this technology ready for its Galaxy devices. However, ISORG says its own OPD (Organic Photo Diode) multi-fingerprint scanning technology is ready, adding that Samsung will probably use similar materials and processes for its All-in-One fingerprint scanner for OLED 2.0.

    ISORG CEO predicts that Samsung will release its multi-fingerprint scanning technology in 2025. The tech will become the de-facto standard for security. At the same time, it's unclear whether Apple will adopt this technology, considering that the latest iPhone models have replaced fingerprint unlocking with Face ID. Samsung will likely be the first OEM to introduce multi-fingerprint scanning and become the industry leader in this particular area.
