    To assign a four digit Samsung Pay PIN instead of using your fingerprint, touch Skip and use Samsung Pay PIN.

  6. If you do not have a Pattern, PIN, or Password lock set up, you will be required to set one up.

  7. To register your fingerprint, place your finger on the Home button. After the device detects your finger, lift it up and place it on the Home button again. Repeat this action by moving your finger upwards or downwards until the fingerprint is registered.

    For best results, keep your finger flat against the Home button and lift it up at a moderate speed. The fingerprint sensor is sensitive to moisture, so make sure both the sensor and your hands are dry.
