Improving Samsung Galaxy S8 Iris Scanner with these Hacks and Tricks

So, today we are going to reveal few best tricks to improve the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S8’s iris scanner.

The Galaxy S8 has several ways to unlock the terminal. In those many ways, we found the fingerprint sensor that is on the back of the mobile, to the right of the camera. We can also see that it has a facial recognition that works really well and also a scanner Of iris. Today we will bring you the best tricks so you can take full advantage of the iris scanner and facial recognition.

Improves face recognition and iris scanner for Samsung Galaxy S8

The first thing we are going to teach you is that you can customise your lock screen with the iris scanner. To do this, we have to change the mask which is visible when unlocking the iris. To do this, we have to follow the following steps:

  • Go to Settings
  • Lock screen and security
  • Iris scanner
  • Preview Mask
  • There you can choose the theme that you like the most

Now, we are going to teach you the best ways to use the iris scanner and facial recognition. To make the S8 iris scanner work better, we have to configure it without glasses or contact lenses. Open your eyes widely (little big than the usual opening)  and in an environment where there is not much light (low light). The iris scanner will work much better in low light environments than in outdoor lights. When sunlight strikes directly on the scanner, it works worse, so we have to learn in which situations to use it.


On the contrary, facial recognition works the other way around. Before commenting, we have to say that to configure it, we recommend the following same advice as for the iris scanner.

The facial recognition works much better in both bright light and low light where it suffers a lot and loses performance. We can only activate one of the two options, so we recommend that, when we are at home or in a closed place, set up the iris scanner, and when we go outside, set the facial recognition.

Another important thing to note is that in order to unlock it faster, we have to activate the iris scanner to activate as soon as the terminal screen lights up, without unlocking the terminal and leaving the unlock pattern and the Mask for this. To do this we have to follow these steps:

  • Settings
  • Lock screen and security
  • Iris scanner
  • Activate the iris unlock with the active screen

That’s it! Hopefully, your biometric unlocking experience is great, but if it’s not, there’s always the rear fingerprint sensor to fall back on. You have set that up already, haven’t you?
