Iris Software For Android

Iris is the popular software for eye protection, health and productivity. This Iris mini is totally free and super minimalistic. You only have 1 button to Start and Pause the application. I find this super cool and other screen filter apps are too bloated for me.

  1. Android is finally getting native support for Iris scanners, likely shipping in Android P. A new HAL and Framework allows for the lock screen to be dismissed, and also for third-party apps to.
  2. IRIS Software is a professional software Company having offices in USA, India and Canada which provides high quality business solutions and support services.
  3. The Iris by Lowe's app is designed to work seamlessly with the Iris Hub as the heart of the simple, customizable smart home security system. Iris streamlines home management and security.

Iris is software for eye protection, health and productivity.

The 2 most popular features of Iris which probably brought you here are:
– You can decrease the amount of blue light emitted from the screen
– Control the brightness without PWM flicker

There are several different modes and several different types of Iris. These are basically some preset values that many people use. Aside from this you can customize Iris a lot. I know that it can be a little hard for non-technical people, but I’m doing my best to make it as easy to use as possible.

By default Iris works automatically and detects if it’s day or night. Based on that it will change your screen Color Temperature and Brightness. When you open the control panel of the program you can select different modes and types of Iris.

If this is still so hard for you, try Iris mini which is a smaller version of Iris with smaller size and lower CPU usage. Both Iris mini and Iris are free, but there are some Pro versions with more features, because I work on Iris full time and want to make it a sustainable business for me. This is my passion and my dream.

Some of the benefits of Iris over competitors are that Iris works even on docking stations and monitors connected with USB with the help of my custom High level Color-API. It has a much larger blue light reduction color range compared to all other alternatives, brightness without pulse-width modulation, manual settings, color effects, font rendering, magnification and partial screen blue light reduction with the help of full-screen overlays.

If for some reason you don’t like Iris you can check f.lux, Twilight, Night Shift, Night Light and Redshift which are some nice alternatives for blue light reduction.

For the brightness and different color effects I don’t think there is another alternative, so you are stuck with Iris. It’s important to preserve our vision so even if you don’t use Iris I will still be happy.

Iris has a free version that you can try. You can also buy a lifelong license for Iris for $15. More about the licensing here.

Thank you for checking out Iris,
Daniel 🙂

P.S. I did a TED talk recently which you can watch here

Google is committed to advancing racial equity for Black communities. See how.

Biometric factors allow for secure authentication on the Android platform.The Android framework includes face and fingerprint biometric authentication.Android can be customized to support other forms of biometric authentication(such as Iris). All biometric implementations must meet security specificationsand have a strong rating in order to participate in theBiometricPrompt class. Biometrics are measured with theImposterAccept Rate (IAR) and SpoofAccept Rate (SAR).

Android 10

  • Introduces the BiometricManagerclass that developers can use to query the availability of biometricauthentication.
  • Includes fingerprint and face authentication integration for BiometricPrompt

Android 9

Iris Software For Android Emulator

  • Includes fingerprint integration only for BiometricPrompt.
  • Deprecates the FingerprintManager class. If your bundled and system apps usethis class, update them to use BiometricPrompt andBiometricManager instead.
  • Updated the FingerprintManager CTS verifier tests to testBiometricPrompt using BiometricPromptBoundKeysTest.


To ensure that users and developers have a seamless biometric experience,integrate your biometric stack with BiometricPrompt. Devices thatenable BiometricPrompt for any modality, including face,fingerprint, and iris, must adhere to these strengthrequirements. If they don't meet the strength requirements, then theycan't implement this class.
To integrate your biometric stack with BiometricPrompt andBiometricManager:

  • Ensure that your <Modality>Service is properly hooked up toBiometricService and hooks the authenticate()method. Common modalities (fingerprint, face) extend from a common superclass.If you need to integrate an unsupported modality, follow the fingerprint/faceexample and the CDD guidelines for biometrics.
  • Ensure that your new modality is properly supported in SystemUI.There are default BiometricPrompt user interfaces for fingerprint and face
  • Update the framework to honor KEYGUARD_DISABLE_*flags for the added biometrics.
  • Ensure that your device passes the CTS and CtsVerifier tests for every modalitythat you've integrated into BiometricPrompt/BiometricManager. For example, ifyou have both fingerprint and face, the tests must pass individually for each ofthem.
Note: Use the androidx.biometric support library demo app to test your implementation. This library is updated regularly with new use cases.

HAL implementation guidelines

Follow these biometric HAL guidelines to ensure that biometric data isnot leaked and is removed when a user isremoved from a device:

Iris Software For Android Operating System

  • Make sure that raw biometric data or derivatives (such as templates) arenever accessible from outside the sensor driver or secure isolated environment(such as the TEE or Secure Element).
  • If the hardware supports it, limit hardware access to the secure isolatedenvironment and protect it with an SELinux policy. Make the communicationchannel (for example, SPI, I2C) accessible only to the secure isolated environmentwith an explicit SELinux policy on all device files.
  • Biometric acquisition, enrollment, and recognition must occur inside thesecure isolated environment to prevent data breaches and other attacks. This requirement only applies to strong biometrics.
  • Store only the encrypted form of biometric data or derivatives on the filesystem, even if the file system itself is encrypted.
  • To protect against replay attacks, sign biometric templates with a private,device-specific key. For Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), at a minimum sign atemplate with the absolute file-system path, group, and biometric ID such thattemplate files are inoperable on another device or for anyone other than theuser that enrolled them on the same device.For example, prevent copying biometric data from a different user on the samedevice or from another device.
  • Use the file-system path provided by theset_active_group()function or provide another way to erase all usertemplate data when the user is removed. It's strongly recommended thatbiometric template files be stored as encrypted in the path provided. If this isinfeasible due to the storage requirements of the secure isolated environment,add hooks to ensure removal of the data when the user is removed or the deviceis wiped.


If your device supports multiple biometrics, the user should be able tospecify a default in settings. Your BiometricPrompt implementation should preferthe strong biometric as the default unless the user explicitlyoverrides it, then a warning message needs to be displayed explaining therisks associated with the biometric (for example, A photo of you mayunlock your device)


Your biometric implementation must pass the following tests:

  • CTS BiometricManager
  • CTS BiometricPrompt (sanity, in-depth testing relies on verifier)
  • CtsVerifier BiometricPromptBoundKeysTest: Must pass individually with each modality that the device supports
  • CtsVerifier BiometricTest: Must pass individually with each modality that the device supports.

In addition, if your device supports a biometric that has an AOSP HIDL ([email protected],face1.0),it must pass its relevant VTS test (fingerprint,face)
