Unlock the Galaxy S8 with Eyes or Your Face

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a fingerprint sensor like most phones, but it's located around back near the camera. The positioning isn't optimal, which is why the company added a slew of other security and lock screen options. 

Did you know the Galaxy S8 has something even more secure than a fingerprint? It's an Iris Eye Scanner. We first saw this with the Galaxy Note 7, but it's better than ever before on the Galaxy S8. A wide-angle camera that works at night, or through glasses, can instantly scan your Iris to unlock the phone. It's extremely secure and works great. 

This is a feature many will want to use if they don't prefer the fingerprint sensor on the back. Additionally, Samsung added a password, pin code, pattern or facial recognition choices for unlock methods. Basically the phone will be secure and safe, with a slew of unlock options available for owners. Try them all today in Settings > lock screen and security.
