Samsung Pass

Samsung Pass is a feature on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 phones. It lets you authenticate yourself using iris, fingerprint and face recognition instead of passwords.

It's quick. One glance gets you quickly logged in or your payments confirmed.

It's secure. Iris technology is currently the most secure type of biometric authentication, with 266 unique characteristics compared to 40 for fingerprints.

How do I set up Samsung Pass on my Galaxy S8 or Note 8?

If you have a Galaxy S8 or Note 8, there are two ways you can start the setup process for Samsung Pass:

In your phone settings, tap 'Lock screen and security' and then 'Samsung Pass'.

Or just open the TSB app, go to 'Settings' and then tap 'Biometric settings'.
