What can I use the Fingerprint Scanner feature on the Note4 for?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

Use Fingerprint recognition as an alternative security method to entering passwords.

In order for fingerprint recognition to function, your fingerprint information needs to

be registered and stored in your device. After registering, you can use your fingerprint

for the functions below at your option:

-Fingerprint lock
- 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 using PayPal

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

       PayPal payments using any your registered
