Conditions that will affect Fingerprint Registration in Samsung Galaxy Note8

Last Update Date : Jun 25. 2018

When scanning your fingerprints on the device, take note of the following conditions that may affect the feature’s performance:


• Ensure that the fingerprint recognition sensor is not scratched or damaged by metal objects, such as coins, keys, and necklaces


• The screen protector on the device may cause the fingerprint recognition sensor to malfunction. Remove the screen protector to improve fingerprint sensitivity


• Ensure that both 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 that are small or thin fingers


• Make sure to cover the entire fingerprint recognition sensor with your finger. The sensor is not able to recognize your fingerprint if the finger is bend or use a fingertip. 


• To improve recognition performance, use your registered fingerprints 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


While registering, please cover entire fingerprint recognition sensor with at least 80% of your fingerprint. Keep your finger flat against the home key and lift it up at a moderate speed. The fingerprint sensor is sensitive to moisture, so make sure both the screen and your fingertip are dry.
