We care deeply about your privacy. So we put in place effective mechanisms that prevent unwanted snooping, while making it surprisingly convenient for you. There's iris scanning for airtight security, face recognition for unlocking your phone right away, and defence-grade security that stands guard around the clock.

Iris Scanner

Open with your eyes

Hold up your Galaxy S8 or S8+ and align your eyes with the twin circles on-screen to scan your irises. Your phone is unlocked with a look.

Face Recognition

Open with
your face

Raise your phone as if taking a selfie to use face recognition. It's a fast and effortless way to unlock your Galaxy S8 or S8+.

Fingerprint Scanner

Open with a touch

As you pick up your Galaxy S8 or S8+, your finger goes naturally to the fingerprint sensor on the back and it's unlocked in one seamless move. You don't even have to wake up the phone first.

Defence-grade security from the
chip up

Samsung Knox is seriously secure and has been approved by governments worldwide. Its level of security begins at the chip level. Something only we can do as chipmakers. Building on the chip-level security are five crucial layers of protection that work at hardware and software levels. On the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the upgraded Knox 2.8 is in position to safeguard your data around the clock.
