    PayPal app on Play Store updated with fingerprint support for Samsung devices

    One of the best features of the fingerprint sensor found on recent Samsung devices is its ability to let users authenticate PayPal payments with a simple swipe. PayPal officially tied up with Samsung to integrate support for the fingerprint sensor in its app, but this app was only available through the Samsung Apps store. Now, PayPal has updated its Android app on the Google Play Store to include support for using the fingerprint sensor if a user owns a supported Samsung device, including the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Alpha, and the Galaxy Tab S tablets.

    Putting the app on the Play Store should make it accessible to a lot more users, especially those who never access the Samsung Apps store on their Samsung devices. You can download the latest version of the PayPal app from the source link.
