    I'm facing issues with fingerprint scanner since last 2 days. I was thinking it not recognising properly due to dusty fingers but after cleaning it then also the same thing happened. As well as I'm facing some general issues such as clearing the notification....

    I have found leaving my finger on the scanner and waiting works best Also I think a quick tap on things, does not cause the extra options to start showing.

    Same thing happening with my OnePlus 7 pro.. After every 2 days of use it is not recognizing my fingerprint.. And hence no other way but to restart my phone again and again.. It's a bug or hardware problem with Oneplus 7pro software unit.. Though not a single scratches or dirt still saying dirty finger.. I think there is some AI problem..

    I'm having the same issue with my 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition. I've had the 6T for a year and the fingerprint scanner worked a lot better on that device. I'm hoping they'll update the software to improve the functionality. The fingerprint scanner didn't work too well when the 6T came out as well.

    I have the exact same thing when I got my OnePlus 6T the fingerprint sensor was terrible but then it got better. so now I hope that the same thing happens for the 7T Pro 5G McLaren. (although I know it will take a long time because it has to go through tmo)

    I'm finding the fingerprint scanner on the McLaren Edition almost useless. I keep re-training and it keeps failing. The fingerprint scanner will work for a while, but seems like the scanner no longer works after something like the moister level in my skin changes (washing my hands seems to be the common factor so far). This was never an issue with the type of fingerprint scanners on the Nexus 6P, Pixel phones, LG V30, etc. This is my first OnePlus phone and my first fingerprint scanner in the screen and so far I think it is not nearly as good as other types I have used. I don't want to moisten my finger every time I want to unlock my phone. I also tried a glass screen protector with this phone, and even when re-training my fingerprint, it would not work. I'm pretty disappointed in this fingerprint scanner so far. I would just use facial recognition if the selfie/front facing camera didn't need to pop up each time. I think a selfie camera in the body of the phone or a notch in the screen would have been more practical.
