Samsung continues to set new standards of security, ensuring Galaxy device users stay connected and secure in today’s digital world. With a range of innovative security features, Samsung offers a secure ecosystem for users to enjoy greater options and effortless living.

In celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, here are six key features that Galaxy device users can leverage to enhance their security:

Samsung Wallet: Worried about payment data theft? Samsung Wallet allows users to shop securely using their Galaxy devices, such as smartphones or smartwatches, for contactless transactions. Samsung Pay, a part of the wallet, ensures every transaction is authenticated by a fingerprint or PIN. If a device is lost or stolen, users can remotely lock or erase their Samsung Wallet account with SmartThings Find. The use of Samsung Knox technology further safeguards users’ card information.

Samsung Message Guard: Protect against spam messages and zero-click exploits. Samsung Message Guard preempts potential threats hidden in image attachments within text messages by checking files bit by bit and isolating them from the device, neutralizing any potential threats. It runs silently in the background, providing seamless protection.

Samsung Private Share: Share files with confidence. With Samsung Private Share, users can control who accesses their data, set permission and expiration dates, restrict re-sharing, and even remove location metadata from photos before sharing. Files are securely encrypted, thanks to blockchain-based encryption technology.

Secure Wi-Fi: Enjoy secure browsing on public Wi-Fi networks with Samsung’s Secure Wi-Fi, encrypting internet traffic and blocking tracking apps. Up to 250 MB of Secure Wi-Fi per month is automatically available to Galaxy users. Users can add a Secure Wi-Fi icon to their home screen for easy access, ensuring privacy protection while working remotely.

Samsung Pass: Eliminate the need for multiple usernames and passwords with Samsung Pass’s biometric authentication technology, featuring an Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor. Samsung’s Security & Privacy Dashboard offers complete control over app permissions and data-sharing features, making data management transparent.

SmartThings Find: In case of a lost device, users can locate, lock, and wipe it remotely with SmartThings Find. This feature ensures that personal information remains secure, and new enhancements make it easier to locate lost devices.

Samsung’s commitment to open collaboration and its partnership with trusted industry partners and the security community ensures a comprehensive approach to security across devices’ ecosystems. End-to-end protection and real-time threat detection are embedded in every layer of connected devices, ensuring that Galaxy users have the privacy and security they need for the freedom to go where life takes them.
