Galaxy A7: How to register fingerprint?

Last Update Date : Oct 04. 2018

The device has been updated to allow the Power button to function as a fingerprint scanner, so it’s easier than ever to unlock your phone.  Just touch the Power button to instantly unlock your phone and turn on the screen.


To add fingerprint please follow below steps:

1 On the Settings screen, tap Biometrics and security → Fingerprint Scanner.
2 Unlock the screen using the preset screen lock method. If you have not set a screen lock method, create one. Check below images for creating Screen lock.
3 Place your finger on the Power key. After the device detects your finger, lift it up and place it on the Power key again. Repeat this action until the fingerprint is registered. When you are finished registering your fingerprints, tap DONE.

When a fingerprint lock screen appears, tap TURN ON to use your fingerprint to unlock the screen.
