If you remember the first handset by Samsung to use the fingerprint sensor was the Galaxy S5 and since then the company’s devices have been using this feature. Now the South Korean giant is even adding this feature to its mid-range devices.
The fingerprint sensor can be used for many other things as well such as logging into websites and even authorizing payments through PayPal and Samsung Pay.
The password manager apps can basically expand these functions by allowing the users to auto fill or log in to sites by just swiping their finger on the sensor. Now Dashlane is one such popular app which is now compatible with Samsung’s biometric technology.
Users can now access their passwords, notes, credit cards, personal information and more with Dashlane by just using their fingerprint to verify their identity. However currently it only supports the Galaxy S5, S6 and S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.
“We made a strategic decision after closing our B-Round 12 months ago to put as many resources into product development as possible, and the adoption of biometric technology in the Android ecosystem is just the latest example of our aggressive product roadmap. Dashlane already provided Touch ID login on iOS and at the end of May, we announced that we would be implementing fingerprint app login with the new Android M operating system,” said Dashlane CEO, Emmanuel Schalit.
