Samsung Galaxy S8 owners can now use the (deeply frustrating) rear-mounted fingerprint scanner to unlock their PC.
The South Korean technology has updated its Flow apps to support the Windows Hello feature baked into Windows 10.
That means the next-generation smartphone can be used to authenticate Windows 10 machines with the fingerprint scanner.
Unfortunately, Express.co.uk was not best impressed with the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
“Unlocking this phone with the fingerprint sensor is teeth-grinding, eye-rolling exercise in anger management,” we wrote in our Galaxy S8 review.
“First of all, the small sensor is not in a natural position for your index finger – forcing you to blindly reach and fumble around the back of the phone to authenticate the login, inevitably covering the camera lens in greasy fingerprints.”
Fortunate then that Galaxy S8 is not the only Samsung smartphone that can be used to unlock a Windows 10 computer.
Samsung has brought the functionality to the Galaxy S6, S7 and their respective Edge counterparts as well.Read More...
