We often use password or fingerprint lock for security in smartphones. However, fingerprint lock is one of the safest ways to keep phone data safe. Although this feature provides you with a fast and easy way to unlock your phone, it may not always respond the way you expect. That means many fingerprint scanners do not work properly and in such a situation it becomes difficult to unlock the phone. Here we are telling about five tips with the help of which you can fix the fingerprint scanner. Let us know.
Clean the screen and fingerprint sensor
Use a microfiber cloth to clean the screen and fingerprint sensor. If your phone has a rear-facing fingerprint scanner and you have a cover on the phone, remove it as the cover may block the fingerprint sensor.
Take care of fingerprint place
Many times we quickly place our finger around the fingerprint scanner which is not the right way. Due to this, the scanner may have difficulty in detecting the finger and the phone will not be able to be unlocked. It is very important that the placement of the finger is accurate to unlock the phone quickly. Place your finger clearly and steadily on the fingerprint sensor. Do not try to press the fingerprint too much. Try to press gently and correctly. If you are facing such problem again and again and you have not set your fingerprint correctly, then you can set it again by going to the fingerprint settings.
Set up alternate fingerprint
Some smartphone models limit setting two or more fingerprints, so try setting an alternate fingerprint.
Update your smartphone’s operating system and security patches, as sometimes software updates can fix local issues with the fingerprint sensor.
reboot your phone
If the fingerprint scanner is not working and all the solutions above don’t fix the problem, you can reboot your phone.
