 What is Fingerprint recognition used for ?




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 set the device to use your fingerprint for the features below:


- Fingerprint Screen 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 with PayPal

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

      using any your registered fingerprints


※ Note : This feature may not be available depending on the region or service provider.
