Fingerprint not registering

First Poster

So with the Feb update the fingerprint scanner is now a constant pain... Once you've registered a fingerprint and go to test it, it doesn't recognise it.... 

Never had a problem before the update

When I'm setting up my fingerprints I find it best practice to set them up as I naturally hold the phone and make sure some of my fingerprints are registered on all the four corners of the fps.


Also i set up 2 of the same fingerprint.


If a phone is still misbehaving after an update then I typically do the following.


1st option 》 Turn the phone off and then from a set series of button presses go into the phones system files and clear the cache.


2nd Ootion 》Back up and then remove any relevant Sd card and factory reset as a last resort.


3rd Option 》 Let a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre have hands on.


I wish you all the best with this situation.



My advice comes from being a UK Samsung Phone Owner.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.
