The Secure Element chip can also protect the Galaxy S20 when the screen is locked. The chip can prevent attackers from resetting the error counter (a tool used to track the number of unlock failures) to crack the PIN, pattern, or password. In addition, the chip can also protect Private keys or sensitive data on third-party applications.
It is worth noting that the chip can be used by other OEM-made devices in addition to being integrated into the Galaxy S20 mobile phone.
