You think the Finger Scanner from your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus was just for unlocking your smartphone? Think again, because there are plenty of other cool things you can do with this catchy feature. How about signing into websites, for instance?
That’s right, you can use the Galaxy S8 Finger Scanner to access websites without having to type in your passwords.
Your favorite websites just came one finger tap closer and your stress for highly-secure, damn-hard-to-remember passwords will soon be history. And the beautiful part? You don’t even have to sweat about activating this sign-in option.
Your smartphone will pop the right question the moment you will access a website from your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus device.
In a nutshell, whenever you visit a website from Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus:
- You will be asked if you want to link the log-in information to your fingerprints;
- You confirm;
- And from that moment on, every time you’ll return to that particular website, you should be able to bypass the password and use your fingerprint instead.
What you need to remember, though, is that this is not a general, automatic option. So, you will have to set this sign-in method for every single website.
But that’s a tiny inconvenient, compared to the tremendous benefit you’re getting, right?
We actually find this function to be very useful and interesting. We’d like to hear your thoughts on it too. How often do you use your Galaxy S8 Fingerprint Scanner? Do you have other tricks up the sleeve for using it?
