Samsung plans to add iris scanning technology to its future smartphones as part of its enterprise security software, according to The Wall Street Journal. The tech is likely to integrate with the company’s Knox platform, which is a mobile security software designed to make Samsung phones more secure in the workplace. “We’re looking at various types of biometric [mechanisms],” Rhee In-jong, Samsung’s senior vice president who leads the development of Knox, told The Wall Street Journal. “And one thing that everyone is looking at is iris detection.” At the same time, the Journal reports that Samsung will bring fingerprint sensors to its cheaper phones, not just flagships like the Galaxy S5. While fingerprint sensors are useful as a more convenient means of unlocking your phone rather than typing in a passcode, security experts have pointed out the  potential security risks.
