    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.

    To register a fingerprint for the first time

    1. Find and tap Settings > Lock screen & security > Fingerprint Manager.
    2. Tap Next. If prompted, confirm your pattern, PIN, or password.
    3. Tap Next and follow the on-screen instructions to complete fingerprint registration.

    When registering a fingerprint for the first time, you are also prompted to set up a pattern, PIN, or password as a security backup if you have not already done so.

    The fingerprint sensor is on the power key and not on the screen of your device. Before using the fingerprint sensor, be sure the sensor is clean and without any visible moisture.

    To register additional fingerprints

    1. Find and tap Settings > Lock screen & security > Fingerprint Manager.
    2. Confirm your pattern, PIN, or password.
    3. Tap Add fingerprint, then follow the on-screen instructions.

    To delete a registered fingerprint
