    I'm facing an issue on my OP7 PRO where my fingerprint sensor doesn't work anymore... I'm assuming it's the last update, since it worked fine but the day after, my phone didn't recognize my fingerprint anymore...

    I restarted the phone and the issue get worse, now the fingerprint (biometric) configuration is no more accessible at all, it disappeared too (see attached photo). I guess the sensor doesn't work or is not detected.

    Can you help, I noticed
    some people as well are facing this fingerprint problem lately ..

    Unfortunately, I tried to wipe the cache as explained in the link in the first comment and restart my phone, but it didn't work, the fingerprint option is till missing ... I'm gonna report it as a bug, hoping they will try to find a solution !

    But in the meantime, if someone facing the same issue finds a solution, let us know !

    Thanks !

    This is a similar fix, with additional steps, check if the procedure can help.

    Remove any screen protector on place so that your finger is hitting the screen directly. If this works, then the screen protector is your problem.

    Once removed or If you don't have a screen protector. Clear all Screen Locks completely, Pin, Fingerprint, Pattern and Facelocks etc

    Also do a search for biometrics (Lower case) as per the image below, and if its available, Clear the biometrics service App info Cache and App info Storage as well.

    Restart the phone and set up the Fingerprint once more.

    See if that helps.

    Thanks for the help, but unfortunately, it doesn't come from the screen protector for sure...

    The fingerprint option is not available anymore (see picture): I can't reset or configure new fingerprints since the option completely disappeared in the screen locks menu, as well as the fingerprint sensor button when unlocking the phone.

    I tried :
    - to remove all my screen locks and restart my phone, but still nothing,
    - to search for the "biometric" term but nothing too (see picture).


    Still thanks for the help tho !
