Will the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy Alpha be able to recognise my fingerprints if my fingers are wet or dirty?

Last Update date : 2014.09.14


For the fingerprint scanner to work effectively please ensure that both the

fingerprint recognition area of the device and your fingers are clean.


If the fingerprint recognition area is dirty, clean it with a soft dry cloth.


Also, if your fingers are dirty, wet, or sweaty, please clean them.


Also, the device may not recognize fingerprints that are affected by wrinkles or scars.
