Samsung‘s password manager app Samsung Pass is now available for Windows PCs. Users with a compatible computer can download the app from the Microsoft Store. It requires Windows 10 version 1903 or higher, or Windows 11. Your computer must also boast TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 or higher, and support Windows Hello. The latter is Microsoft’s biometric authentication service. It lets you sign in by scanning your face, fingerprint, or iris along with a PIN.
The Windows version of Samsung Pass can sync saved login information from your Galaxy smartphone or tablet with your computer. This makes it easy to browse the internet or check social media on any device without having to manually enter login credentials on each device. You simply save the credentials on one device and use those across your connected ecosystem. Samsung Pass may not work properly on a custom-built Windows PC even if it meets the aforementioned hardware and software requirements, though.
Samsung Pass debuts on Windows just in time for the Galaxy Book 3
Over the past few years, Samsung has significantly strengthened its partnership with Microsoft. This has helped Galaxy users get more out of their Windows PCs in a connected environment. The Korean firm offers Windows versions of several smartphone apps, including Bixby, Gallery, SmartThings, S Note, and more, enabling a seamless experience across your setup. Samsung Pass is now joining that roster to further bridge the gap between Galaxy devices and Windows PCs.
The arrival of Samsung Pass on Windows is particularly notable because it debuts just in time for the Galaxy Book 3 series, which went official last week. The Korean firm unveiled three models during the Galaxy Unpacked event where the Galaxy S23 series also broke cover. We have the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra topping the line with some bonkers specs. If it’s overkill for you, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro offers a strong set of specs without breaking the bank. There’s also a convertible 360 version of the latter.
These PCs boast a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button, enabling you to use biometric authentication. And thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft, they also get new features that bring them closer to Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Among other things, you can now continue web browsing sessions from your Galaxy mobile devices to your computer via a new Recent Websites feature. If you’re interested in Samsung’s Galaxy Book 3 lineup, the new PCs are now available for pre-order.
