Samsung Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner will authenticate payments in Samsung Pay
The iris scanner in Galaxy Note 7 does not only add another layer of security system to the phone but it will also be used in Samsung Pay. The app will utilize iris recognition for a more secured way in doing payments with mobile banking.
Similar to the fingerprint sensor, the iris scanner is part of an authentication after you buy something using Samsung Pay, NFCWorld wrote. Thus, the idea of authenticating a payment using your eyeball would definitely make the process more secured.
The facts that many South Korean banks released support for iris scanning feature seem to corroborate the news. Some names include Woori Bank, Shinhan Bank and KEB Hana Bank. Shinhan Card is ahead of the rest as it is technically preparing the support service, FindBiometrics reported. Following Shinhan, KB Kookmin Card and Hyundai Card should have the service available soon by end of this month.
