Samsung will soon let you unlock any Windows 10 PC using a Galaxy fingerprint reader

Samsung is planning to expand its Flow Android app to support any Windows 10. Samsung first introduced the ability to unlock its Windows 10-powered Galaxy TabPro S with a Samsung Flow app for Android last year. You simply use the fingerprint reader on a compatible Galaxy smartphone to unlock the Windows 10 tablet.

Sammobile reports that Samsung has responded to requests to make this feature available across any Windows 10 PCs, and the company is now planning to enable this with the Windows 10 Creators Update. While Microsoft hasn’t officially announced a release date for the Creators Update, it’s expected to arrive in April. Samsung was already using Microsoft’s Windows Hello Companion Device Framework to enable its fingerprint unlock, and it appears the company is simply expanding on that with the latest update to Windows 10.
