Does Galaxy Z Flip 3 Have Fingerprint?
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 does have the option to enable the fingerprint security feature to lock and unlock your smartphone. It uses the power button/key on the side of your phone as the fingerprint scanner.
You will need to have a pin code to set up the fingerprint feature. If you don’t already have a pin created for your phone, you can create one when you set up and scan your fingerprint.
Setting up the Galaxy Z Flip 3 fingerprint scanner is an added security feature to protect your phone’s content when not in use.
The power button is used to read your print which must first be scanned by the smartphone’s biometrics. Once set up, the phone can unlock quickly by pressing your thumb or finger on the power button.
Any finger or thumb can be used, you will want to choose a fingerprint that is free of scars and burns. It is also a good idea to have more than one fingerprint scanned and saved in case your primary fingerprint becomes damaged or unusable.
Enabling the fingerprint security feature is just one of many advanced features/options available depending on your individual use and needs.
Unlocking a phone with a thumbprint is much safer, quicker, and easier than using the pin code as your fingerprint is unique to only you.
