How to Create Better Fingerprint Recognition on Galaxy S8

In order for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge fingerprint recognition to function, your fingerprint information needs to be registered and stored in your device. After registering, you can set the device to use your Galaxy S8 fingerprint features below:
  1. Screen lock
  2. Web sign-in
  3. Verify Samsung account
  4. Secure Folder
  5. Samsung Pay
This Galaxy S8 feature may not be available depending on the region or service provider.Fingerprint recognition uses the unique characteristics of each fingerprint to enhance the security of your Samsung Galaxy. The likelihood of the fingerprint sensor confusing two different fingerprints is very low. However, in rare cases where separate fingerprints are very similar the sensor may recognise them as identical.
• If you use your fingerprint as a screen lock method, your fingerprint cannot be used to unlock the screen when turning on the device. To use the device, you must unlock the screen using a pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint. Be careful not to forget your pattern, PIN, or password.
• If your fingerprint is not recognised, unlock the device using the pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint, and then re-register your fingerprints. If your pattern, PIN, or password is forgotten, you will not be able to use the device if you do not reset it. Samsung is not responsible for any data loss or inconvenience caused by forgotten unlock codes.

When you scan your fingerprints on the device, be aware of the following conditions that may affect the feature’s performance:
  1. The Home key contains a fingerprint recognition sensor. Ensure that the Home key is not scratched or damaged by metal objects, such as coins, keys, and necklaces.
  2. The screen protector supplied with the device may cause the fingerprint recognition sensor to malfunction. Remove the screen protector to improve fingerprint sensitivity.
  3. Ensure that the fingerprint recognition area and your fingers are clean and dry.
  4. The device may not recognise fingerprints that are affected by wrinkles or scars.
  5. The device may not recognise fingerprints from small or thin fingers.

  7. To improve recognition performance, register fingerprints of the hand used most often to perform tasks on the device.
