"com.samsung.android.biometric" doesn't show up in my apps list under settings . I'm using the SM-N975F/DS, which is Exynos version. Does anyone have Exynos based Note 10 who is able to change this setting?

OK, found it under "special access" , I have to search for "Optimize battery usage" in the settings search bar and then filter for All apps, then look for "com.samsung.android.biometric" and turn off battery optimization. Tried this setting, and I only notice a very slight improvement in unlocking speed. So maybe this doesn't benefit Exynos devices as much. Would like to hear others' experiences.

Settings menu, search for optimize, select optimize battery usage, change list to all, look for com.Samsung.biometrics.app... Uncheck it.

When looking at the apps listed I see seven com.samsung. apps . I cannot expand them to see which one is for biometrics. I am missing something. Can you tell me which one it is?
Thanks
