Hi all,

 
I have a Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus phone and have brought a screen protector but my finger print isn't working. Yes, the sensitivity is on. Can anyone recommend any screen protectors that will work for fingerprint scanner? 
 
Thank you.

The Tauri 2 pack tpu film screen has worked really well on mine no problems with the fingerprint sensor

Have you tried re-registering your fingerprints
Must always do that after any installation
You don't say what type protector you have installed

Yes I have and it's just not scanning.
That'll help sorry 😃 I have a Gorilla Tempered Glass Screen Protector.

Yeah some glass protectors won't be compatible.
Especially if they only have adhesive around the edges. Those will never work.
It needs to have the adhesive fully covering the screen side.
Best ones are with liquid adhesive you need a UV light to cure.
A real fiddle some of those, but they work properly. Ones like the Whitestone Dome

Hi Jammy I'm having the same issue 🙈 I think it's the Gorilla Glass as mine was working before I put that on

I redid my fingerprints by licking my finger on each fingerprint. It worked well.
