RetiredGuy Adventures (2 years ago)
I am thinking of buying the S5 just because of the waterproof capability. There has been so much negative about the fingerprint function though that I have had second thoughts about it. Knowing I can disable it and actually choose the "none" option to avoid having to use a fingerprint or a password has made my decision to buy this unit. Thanks again!
How to Smartphone (2 years ago)
I usually set up all my phones without using the fingerprint option.. it can become a hassle.

Thank you. I finally deactivated my finger print scan. I agree with a previous comment. This scan my be easy to use on an iPhone, but it took too many swipes on the Galaxy s5.  Glad it's off now..

Steven Guzy (2 years ago)
no matter what i try i cannot get rid of the fingerprint scanner to get into my s5. It's HORRIBLE! Unable to to deregister is one problem and the others, to select the other options, Fingerprint Manager just keeps asking for my fingerprint again, can't change screenlock method, can't do a thing! HELP please, if you can. I do not want to factory reset. THAT is a HUGE problem
How to Smartphone (2 years ago)
That was going to be my advise, try hard reset. Or take it into your cell provider and see if they dont have any ideas.
juzzkriz (2 years ago)
Hey there!! when I tried to disable the feature it shows '' disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage. '' how can I fix it??
