Keep your eyes open fully and look at the top of the screen. Iris recognition may not work properly in
direct sunlight.

For best results, avoid direct sunlight and perform this process indoors. And, keep the camera clean
as dirt and debris on the iris camera, LED sensor, or proximity sensor may cause the device to have difficulty recognizing your irises.

Look at the screen to scan your irises. If your iris is not recognized within 10 seconds or you are close
to it, the device
will automatically stop iris recognition to protect your eyes.

 

If your irises are not recognized, unlock the device using the pattern, PIN, or password you set when
registering the irises, and then re-register your irises. If your pattern, PIN, or password is forgotten, you
will not be able to use the device if you do not reset it. Samsung is not responsible for any data loss or
inconvenience caused by forgotten unlock codes.
