In this regard, HMD Global, a Finnish company that develops mobile devices under the Nokia brand, has recently become available to the public update improves the performance of this aspect.
Last weekend, however, a Twitter user in the UK he said that this patch has not achieved complete improvement. Through a video, he demonstrates the existence of a "mass security defect" this allows access to the main screen of the mobile phone by pushing the reader with almost everything: using the finger of another person who is not registered or a pack of chewing gum.

Juho Sarvikas, product manager of HMD Global, contacted the owner of the defective smartphone and noted that they had failed to replicate the problem on other phones. Sarvikas vowed that the British subsidiary would investigate the case; so he asked his owner to provide the company with the device to analyze it.
Hello! We were unable to reproduce the problem. Our team in the UK will contact you. It would be very useful if we could change your unit so that we could study this. Thanks!
