users to access a place or a device. We are specifically talking about that of a

security frontier to its high-end handsets started with the Galaxy Note 7.

Galaxy Note 8 is, of course, sporting this neat feature on board.

PIN code, or a pattern. In case you have already set one of these, this
prerequisite won’t show up.
Step 5. Next up,

precautions and warnings pertaining to the use of the iris scanner. For
example, you should never try to set it up for an infant as you can damage
their eyesight. You also shouldn’t go for off-brand screen protectors as they
can easily prevent the iris scanner at the top front of the phone from working
as intended. We recommend that you go through all of these before you continue
onward.
