Samsung Flow is not a new app for certain Android smartphones that allows users to unlock the company’s Galaxy Tab Pro S without a password. Now that Samsung is communicating to users that all Windows 10 PCs will be given the similar fame to access their Samsung Flow app in April. First of all, you should know about Samsung Flow and how does it work? Here are the details.


As aforementioned, it is an app for smartphone that lets you unlock your Galaxy Tab Pro S without using the fingerprint reader. It also allows for easy notification syncing and quick mobile hotspot setup. With the Tab Pro S, you simply download the app on our phone and pair the two devices over NFC and you’re ready to go.

According to page, the Flow app only works on Samsung’s Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5, S7, S7 Edge, and 2016 versions of the A7 and A5. Likely to get full support for Galaxy S8 when it releases. Currently, Flow works exclusively with the Galaxy Tab Pro S, which you set up by downloading the app and pairing the device over NFC.

A new report surfaced suggesting that the same app will work with all Windows 10 PCs soon, possibly in April when the Windows 10 Creators Update is expected to be live.

As said the Samsung Flow app allows users to unlock their tablet with a compatible Galaxy smartphone’s fingerprint scanner. The Korean company has also confirmed in reply to a Samsung Flow user that an upcoming update is in the works, once released, it will allow compatible Galaxy phones to enable its mobile hotspot so a Windows 10 PC can stay connected remotely via its Wi-Fi hardware.

The Samsung Flow setup might change a bit, as the majority of laptops and very much all desktops don’t have NFC for pairing. It’s possible that changes to Windows Hello will make the pairing easier and allow all PCs to use a phone as a proxy fingerprint reader.

In addition to a fingerprint authentication, the app also lets users check their Galaxy smartphones notifications and reply to them via the PC, transfer data, content, and even share app activity from the paired smartphone.
