Galaxy Note4: What is fingerprint scanner and how to register on the device?
Use Fingerprint recognition as an alternative security method to entering passwords.
In order for fingerprint recognition to function, your fingerprint information needs
to be registered and stored in your device. After registering, you can use your
fingerprint for the functions below at your option:
1. Go to Settings and tap Finger Scanner on PERSONALISATION.

the Terms and Conditions to use this function for the first time.
3. Read a disclaimer, and then tap OK.
4. Swipe your fingertip over the home key from the top of the indicated
area downwards. Repeat 10 times.

unavailable. Your password must contain at least one character.
