In this next article we’d like to share our opinions on the different Samsung Galaxy S8 lock screen settings that are likely to come with the device. Now that more security features have been added, the number of potential lock screen settings has grown exponentially. The best settings include pins, fingerprint sensors and even facial tracking.
Out of all of the Samsung Galaxy S8 lock screen settings, pins are the most heard of. It’s often that you’ll find your friends, family or acquaintances using pin codes – it seems like it’s something we’re all so used to using, but there are other options. When it comes to pins, Galaxy S8 owners can opt for a standard 4 digit pin code or instead they can use a alphanumerical password.
There are plenty of different pattern lock screen settings on the Galaxy S8 but they are all very similar in terms of functionality. With a pattern, users must swipe the screen in a certain pre-set pattern to unlock their smartphone. Pattern lock screens have a medium level of security because whilst it could be hard to guess a pattern, prying eyes can easily see what patterns are being swiped. On top of this, patterns have less combinations than a standard pin code or password.
Fingerprint sensors are the next level of security found on most Android smartphones. With a fingerprint sensor set up, you will be able to unlock your Samsung Galaxy S8 by simply holding your finger on the home button. This is by far the most convenient unlock method and it has a pretty high level of security as well. There could always be potential bypasses for technology like this – it’s still fairly new and bypasses could still exist that wouldn’t exist on a standard password or pin but for the everyday user these are unlikely to be found, if they exist at all.
