    Hello, every morning when I wake up and after not using the phone 7-8 hours fingerprint unlock can't unlock every time. Unlocks from every third attempt.
    After ten or fifteen successful or unsuccessful attemps fingerprint unlock begin to function normally.
    I have allready deleted and uploaded a new fingerprint three times, but again this difficult unlocking happensevery morning.
    Let me mention that I don't use protective screen glass, there is a factory foil on the sreen.
    I ask how the fingerprint unlock will work when I put one the protective glass???
    I am currently on Oxygen OS
    Before I buying OnePlus 8T I used OnePlus 6T and I no had problems with fingerprint unlock.It worked much better on the OP 6T.
    Does anyone know what the problem is.
    Thank you.

    I find in my case that upon unlocking the phone I have a similar issue. However, if I wait about one or two seconds, and then place my finger/thumb squarely and slightly firmly upon the reader it works. After unlocking the reader works without issue. So to me it appears as if the reader is going into a deep sleep and needs a second or two to "wake up" as it were. It has improved a little over time with various updates but there is still an issue.

    Same thing here! I thought it was only me with this problem. When I woke up and want to unlock my phone, finger print scanner not lighting up so i must put my code to unlock phone, then finger print scanner working fine again.

    I'm not sure they can fix anything more with software. I think there's something wrong with the reader itself. Fortunately I can live with it for now.

    I think also, that it's a hardware problem. I'm having same problems with 8T
    With 7T and 6T no problems and with OP6 same problems.

    Or is it Android 11?
    Even when trying to make new fingerprints it's usually fails.

    I guess you are moving your fingers too quickly while unlocking your phone...

    That's us the reason for too many unsuccessful attempts.

    Place ur fingers on scanner and wait for your phone to unlock it should unlock with in 1 sec..
