    Fingerprint Manager

    Fingerprint functionality is not available in the US market.

    Register your fingerprint to use it as an additional security method for unlocking your device or for authenticating purchases and app access. You can register up to five fingerprints on your device.

    The pattern, PIN or password screen lock serves as a backup unlock method when a fingerprint is used as a screen lock. Before registering your fingerprint, ensure the sensor is clean and without any visible moisture.

    Fingerprint settings are cleared if you change to another screen lock.
