[Galaxy S7 Edge] Why the device requests PIN/Pattern/Password when I am trying to set up lock screen by Fingerprint?

Last Update date : 2017.08.02

 

To use the Fingerprint function on devices based on Android OS 6.0, you need to set up PIN, Pattern or

Password must be set first.

 

This is Google’s new concept to reinforce the device security and it’s common concept for devices based

on Android OS 6.0. Accordingly, you can unlock your device with PIN, Pattern or Password which you

set even if you set your lock screen as Fingerprint.
