Samsung Galaxy s20 Plus - Finger print sensor

Hi, 

Hoping someone can offer advice, I have noticed tonight if I tap the fingerprint sensor 3 times quickly, it will unlock the phone, regardless of whether the finger print is registered or not.

Just wondered if anyone else's does this? I have a screen protector but surely that should make the security more cautious rather than any finger being able to unlock the phone? Phone has just been updated and issue still persists, so confused as to how to stop this. 

Thanks!

(if only) you are using a thick front silicone cover altogether when registering your fingerprint, 

try removing registered fingerprints then register without the thick cover

restart the phone too

 

thanks 😉

If you didn't clean the screen properly before applying the protector the residue of the fingerprint is being pressed against the sensor when you tap it.
