[Galaxy S6/S6 Edge] What should do I for better fingerprint recognition?

Last Update Date : Jan 13. 2018

When you scan your fingerprints on the device, be aware of the following conditions that

may affect the feature’s performance:

 

 

  The Home key contains a fingerprint recognition sensor.

Ensure that the Home key is not scratched or damaged by metal objects, such as coins,

keys, and necklaces.

Ensure that the fingerprint recognition area and your fingers are clean and dry.

The device may not recognize fingerprints that are affected by wrinkles or scars.

  The device may not recognize fingerprints from small or thin fingers.

  The screen protector supplied with the device may cause the fingerprint recognition

sensor to malfunction. Remove the screen protector to improve fingerprint sensitivity.

  If you bend your finger or use a fingertip, the device may not recognize

your fingerprints.  Make sure to cover the entire Home key with your finger.

  

To improve recognition performance, register fingerprints of the hand used most often to perform

tasks on the device.

  In dry environments, static electricity can build up in the device. Avoid using this feature in dry

environments or before using the feature, discharge static electricity by touching a metal object.
