Samsung's Galaxy S8 can sign into websites using your face

The Galaxy S8’s face and fingerprint detection are about more than unlocking your phone… if Samsung has its way, you’ll use them to sign into seemingly everything online. The company is expanding its Samsung Pass feature to use biometrics to sign into not only a wider array of financial services, but also shopping and other website. Yes, you could start shopping just by staring at your phone for a while. And if you’re health conscious, the S8 might just save you a trip to the clinic.

As rumored, the S8’s version of S Health includes an option to talk to a doctor. If you have a quick question about your condition, you don’t have to plan a trip or turn to a third-party service. The live chat feature will only be available in a few countries on launch, but that includes the US.
