    At first, I thought it was a fake but then I tried to unlock my S8 with one eye and it unlocked… DAMN IT.

    but takin someone's iris is very difficult.. one thing that they took a photo of that person but the real eye is from another spot another lighting.. actually they are making a stupid video.. don't you notice that..?

    If someone wants in your phone that bad, they would probably just kidnap you off the street and torture you until you unlock it for them.

    Everything can be bypassed if the right technology is used. You can copy someone's fingerprint and unlock his phone with it and you can use programs to find phones' passwords. My point is that nothing is completely safe and unless you are the president of the United States and you keep your nuclear plans in your phone no one is going to go that far just to steal your phone

    And the next step is : An app who convert regular pictures to "ir look alike" and display at 1:1 with a software lens based on the gyro…

    Even an Xperia XZ has the better rear camera, with a 19MP lens versus the 12MP found on the S8 and S8+.

    You can activate a fingerprint scanner on your breast nipple.. Nobody will figure out he has to fake your breast nipple to hack it…

    many might say that this is totally irrelevant, because you can't get the pictures.
    Let's say Trump switches to S8 and uses Iris.
    Trump does not have dark eyes, therefore you don't need an IR picture.
    There are many close-up shots of him on the internet.

    Samsung is born failures

    I've tried, too, anyone, can try it, and will see how wrong this video are.

    Stealing a 100's thousand Euro, brand new BMW millions times easier then this :)…But nobody concerns about it…

    great job… Samsung said they will update SW and that will solve the problem once and for all… Try again when they did… From Korea​

    so the conclusion is: fingerprint and especially iris lock are safe, if someone hacks your phone the way shown in the video, you're a fucking retard and totally deserve it.

    non samsung peasants, enjoy your pattern lock lol

    The mobile locked with the eyes of a man and unlocked with the photo of the eyes of the same man. Isn't normal ?
    This is not Hacking.
