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 unlocking 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.
