And additionally, Samsung has also added its own security in the latest Samsung S10 series which makes it more difficult for modification on the device. But Topjohnwu (Recognized Developer and Magisk Creator) has done an impossible work by bypassing Samsung dual-layer security and rooted his own Samsung S10 with Magisk. All thanks to him for sharing the method to Root Samsung S10 Series. This method will work with the latest Samsung Phones running on Android Pie.

And Samsung has made it difficult to unlock bootloader by adding “Vaultkeeper” in the system, which will relock the bootloader once you wipe the phone. So you must have to follow the unlocking bootloader procedure carefully. And once the bootloader is unlocked you can root your Samsung Galaxy S10 series.
