I just got my S5. I am trying to add a much needed added layer of security to the device through either a password or finger print. I have gone through the process of enabling both, each time when I return the lock screen it is not enabled?? Settings clear show it is on.
I restarted the device, upon restart the finger print scanner was enabled upon restart. but once i return back to the lock screen it is gone. Why they wont stay enabled or enable at all?
Figured out it was set to only enable after 10 mins of no activity.
My fingerprint scanner has stopped working totally. I have erased all finger prints but I can't re-register any.I have the latest software, I have rebooted but nothing works?I don't want to send it away as I don't have a spare phone.
The fingerprint scanner just stopped working. It was working fine, then it stop detecting any finger prints and I even tries to reset it, but it wouldn't let me, I kept getting an error message as soon as I tried. I really don't want to have to get this phone replaced already?
I have been using the phone for past two weeks and having issue with the fingerprint scanner. The scanner stops working all of a sudden for no reason and then the phone needs to be rebooted to make the scanner function. I updated my phone with the latest patch .83..
Everytime I press the power button on my Samsung to wake it up, it automatically comes up with the 'no match' message, thinking that there is always a finger on the button, meaning it instantly sends me to the back up password screen.
When on the fingerprint set up tab in settings it still thinks that a finger is placed on the home button, if I try to add a new fingerprint I can leave my phone laying down without touching it and the phone starts adding up in percentages as if I was adding my own fingerprint, yet I'm not even touching it.
When I try to access my phone the only option is a keyboard and not a finger swipe panel. I put in my alternate password many times then get error saying cannot verify your finger print wait 30 secs try again
New T-Mobile Galaxy S6. Is there a way to set the screen-time for the fingerprint log-in feature to display longer. Sometimes my login screen stays up long enough to press my thumb print, but many times it appears and disappears before I can log in. Is there a setting to increase the time it stays visual?
Today after having my beloved Samsung Galaxy 6 for over a month, the finger print scanner didn't recognize my finger print. I don't have a back up password (or if i do i don't remember it) so I just typed in something so i could sign in with my google account. I typed in my correct email and password but its saying my password is invalid. I know its not invalid because I just used it on my computer. So now i really stuck..what do i do? Do i just wait and go into a mobile store?
My fingerprint is not being recognized by my Samsung Galaxy S6, my back up password is not working even though I'm pretty sure it's correct but maybe i have forgotten it I don't know BUT the other problem is I can't access Samsung device manager online because my Gmail account I have created on my phone requires the 2 step-verification thing where a code is sent to my phone first for me to type into my computer but since I can't access my phone I can't view the code!
Changed from Z3 to Z5 2 mths ago. The Z5 battery drain really fast. Same usage, same app, same setting as my Z3, but the battery last way way shorter, about 60% of my Z3. Really disappointed.. Another thing is the thumb print sensor.. When you 1st register, its all accurate and good. After sometime, (typically a few days), the accuracy of the sensor will be out.. I need to rely on luck to unlock my screen by thumb print.
Okay so ever since the last update i have been having trouble with my finger print sensors. After I reboot my phone the fingerprint sensors works fine, but after few hours it would randomly stop working. And so I erased all the data on my phone (Factory Data Reset). It did the same thing. What should I do? I bought my phone on march. So I can not really exchange it?
I fell in love with ‘Corby’ at first sight because of its unique and refreshing color. I’ve used it for a week now and quite satisfied. Putting all things aside, I enjoy the stare of passers-by when I take out the phone. They will comment on the design and compliment the phone. I bought a yellow one which stands out dramatically in contrast to the black handset.
A few features that are different from existing touch screen phones. First, you can do zooming with only one finger. If you place your finger on the image and move it up and down, the zooming changes. Another feature I find really convenient is the access to Facebook and Twitter with widget. I had envied friends with iPhone because they could do Twitter anywhere and anytime. Well, now I can use Twitter 24-7!.......
WM 6.1 upgrade went without problem, but now I have issue with Wi-Fi access.PIE is unable to open any websites if the phone connects to any secured wireless network.(WEP, WPA, WPA2)Only time the wi-fi would work is when I connect to non-secured network.When I was on WM 6.0, I had no issues what so ever, so this is a new problem and I know I setup the network correctly. (Router issues IP address and network card receives IP address.)Looks like it happened to couple of others as well, but there does not look to be any remedy for it.
Of course about 90% of the time I will be connecting to non-secured network, so it should not be a too large an issue, but if possible, I would like to fix this.According to the search, only remedy I have seen is a guy contacting Samsung and getting WM 6.0 re-flashed on the phone. Other than 6.0 reflash, could there be any other potential resolution that I have overlooked?
