Set Up Galaxy Note8 to Use Facial Recognition Security
Once the stuff of Sci-Fi movies, now a reality: show your face and your phone unlocks. Seriously. You can register your face to unlock your phone or to verify your identity in apps such as Samsung Pay. Never again worry about dropping your phone and getting it in the wrong hands with Facial Recognition Security.
• The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
• Your phone can be unlocked by someone that looks similar to you (such as a twin).
• Face Recognition is less secure than Pattern, PIN, Iris, or Fingerprint.
