Soon, your Samsung phone may be able to recognize your iris and log you into your Windows PC.
Iris-scanning via phone is not yet a feature available for Samsung’s latest Galaxy Book 2-in-1s, which were announced at Mobile World Congress. But the company wants to quickly bridge the gap between its Galaxy smartphones, which run on Android, and its Windows PCs and 2-in-1s.
Software called Samsung Flow links the company’s Android smartphones to Windows PCs. Samsung and Microsoft are looking to collaborate on logins via Windows Hello — designed to use biometric authentication to log into PCs — and one big Flow feature is the ability to use Galaxy smartphones to wirelessly log in to the new Galaxy Book.
