New Samsung video shows how to keep your Galaxy Note 8 secure

New Samsung video shows how to keep your Galaxy Note 8 secure

 

Samsung this week released a video aimed at current and future Galaxy Note 8 owners. As you can see below, the video shows how to keep all the info and data on your Note 8 secure - from choosing a screen lock pattern or PIN, to setting up the rear fingerprint scanner, registering your face for facial recognition, or setting up the iris scanner.   

 

Of course, there's nothing too complicated revealed in the video. If you've used a recent Samsung flagship before, you probably already know what to do to keep your new smartphone secure.

 

One particular thing to mention when it comes to safeguarding your Galaxy Note 8 is that face recognition is not as secure as iris recognition, a pattern, password, or PIN. That's because, as it also happens on the Galaxy S8, the Note 8's facial recognition system can be fooled by a photo of you. Thankfully, a disclaimer about this shows up on the Galaxy Note 8 before you actually set up face recognition.
