Hi @sheplfc74 

 

Did you manage to get this sorted?

I'm having the same issue after an update yesterday. All other fingerprint apps are working fine. Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass are not recognizing my print.

Nope, still not working, think its since this fingerprint update?

Exactly the same here, recognises most prints/apps, but if it askes 2 do anything with pass i just cancel it, just incase it locks me out for some reason, what are we supposed to do.? Come on SAMSUNG.

S10 is all over the place...

Frustrating because I use Pass a lot and don't know my logins (future note to write them down from now on) and I use Samsung Pay a lot - which I looked like a giant mess yesterday trying to pay for my purchase with a huge line behind me but I hadn't brought my cards in the store because I haven't had to. =/

Have you tried to remove all finger prints and rescan them again since the last update.  I had some issues of similar sorts with recognition of my previous prints, but I deleted them all and created a new record of my prints and which resolved this for me.  

 

Also do you use a screen protector that is non-standard ?  Also something to consider and after market screen protectors have been a bugbear for some time.  The increased security of the recent update may be causing some issues with the screen protectors that may have previously worked.  Just a guess !

I can try removing and rescanning fingerprints later today but no, no screen protector. It's odd. Lock screen and everything else is working, just not Pass or Pay.

Removing existing fingerprints and re-add fix the issue with Samsung Pass.
