The Samsung Flow app impressed many users when it allows them to unlock Galaxy PCs such as the TabPro S with the fingerprint reader on their Galaxy smartphone. And now, according to The Verge, this feature has been extended to Windows 10 PCs.

With the updated Samsung Flow app, signing in to Windows 10 PC is as easy as scanning your fingerprint on the Galaxy phone. Supported phones include the brand's flagship phone, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, as well as the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and more.

Meanwhile, users need to ensure that their Windows PC supports Bluetooth and has a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

Apart from authenticating their PC with user's smartphone, they can also sync notifications from the phone to the end PC and share content between devices.
