- Web sign-in : Sign in to websites that can remember passwords by swiping any

    of your registered fingers over the home key.

- Verify Samsung account

    : Instead of entering your Samsung account password, swipe any of your registered

    fingers over the home key for example, when purchasing content in Samsung services

- Pay with PayPal

    : Link your PayPal account to your device to make quick and secure PayPal payments

      using any your registered fingerprints
