[Galaxy S8/S8+]Is there harm in using IRIS scanner on the eyes?

Last Update Date : 2018-04-09

 

If eyes are exposed to IR within the distance of 2cm for more than 10 seconds,

it might be harmful to your eyes.

But Iris scanning of S8/S8+ operates at the distance of 20cm~35cm within 1 second.

And, If you look at the iris recognition LED for more than 10 seconds or you are close to it,
the
device will automatically stop iris recognition to protect your eyes. Thus, there is no harm
for human eyes.

In addition, IR LED of the Iris scanner for S8/S8+ achieved safety certification of highest level
“Exempt” based on the international
standard IEC 62471.
(IEC :
International Electronical Commission)
