Samsung Pass (Android) is a management service present in the One UI interface of Samsung mobile phones. With the feature, it is possible to validate the login to websites and applications with biometrics, facial recognition or iris recognition without the need to enter your password at each access. Furthermore, it can also be used to store sensitive information such as addresses, notes and credit card data.

To use it, you need to activate it on your Samsung mobile phone and then validate the login for each application or website account.
