How to register my Iris for Iris recognition on lock screen in Samsung Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : May 07. 2018

The patterns in your irises are unique to you and are virtually impossible to replicate, meaning iris authentication is one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked and the contents private.

To register your Irises for Iris recognition on lock screen, follow these steps:

Please note:
• The device can save iris data for one person only. You cannot register more than one set of irises.


• 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.
