Thieves are exploiting the demonstration devices of Samsung in the stores to get the mask Samsung Fortnite Galaxy of free.
The mask Galaxy Fortnite is reserved for the owners of Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4.
Samsung is trying to prevent the theft of the skin through the limitations of the demonstration unit and the signaling retailer.
When the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 finally arrived at the shelves on the 24th of August, something else was released along with them: the case of Samsung Fortnite Galaxy , a customization exclusive to your character Fortnite that makes you look like a god space trippy.
However, some players poachers found a solution to play discreetly with Fortnite on demonstration devices in retail stores, and then claim the skin Samsung Fortnite Galaxy through that device, without buying anything at all in reality.
The process of theft is quite simple:
The players enter a retail store that has a Galaxy Note 9 or a Galaxy Tab S4 on display.
Installed Fortnite in the demonstration unit and log in with their credentials.
Play through three games on the device and then disconnect.
In 24 to 48 hours, your account (now you are logged into your personal device) receives the mask Samsung Fortnite Galaxy.
The only tricky part of the plan is to play through the three games Fortnite without an employee tells you to stop.
What sucks is that the case Galaxy only can claim once in each device, which means that if this demonstration unit is then sold as a model restored at some point, the buyer will not have the ability to claim a skin Galaxy. Once it goes, it goes.
In response to this, Samsung is now blocking the facilities of Fortnite in the shops of the Samsung brand in all over the world. If you try to install Fortnite in a demonstration device, the installation fails. But in stores that are not Samsung where it shows Note 9 or Tab S4 (as almost all the shops of carriers and Best Buy in the united States), the installation could not be locked.
