    Yes that's for security reasons. It exists to almost every new (technologically) phone. Simply, it will compel you to use a different method of unlocking once you've booted your phone for security reasons.

    Just a scenario.
    You are on your way to home and you get caught by two murderers and they kill you. If that above security did not exist then, they could use your finger from your dead *** body to unlock your phone. Instead? They gotta guess themselves the unique pattern/pin you have set in order to gain access to your phone.

    I suppose that's what you are referring to?

    I noticed that the fingerprint sensor is slower in a dark room (during the night for example)

    You can change the animation but the color will be the same.

    happy new year!


    for me the fingerprint sensor works just like it did out of the box. By out of the box I mean that at times it surprises because of his fast it works and other times it surprises you just how slow it is during those times that I use the face scanner.

    The last post I posted detailed turning off the night mode made my fingerprint unlock significantly faster. However, I just disabled auto unlock once the screen is on for the face unlock. That again made my fingerprint unlock a little faster. Hope that helps speed up yours as well.

    Same problem here. I have to delete and make a new fingerprint every few days because it get's worse and worse until it just stops working completely and I have to enter my code.

    Are you guys using official 6T screenprotector or an aftermarket protector?

    I am on Open Beta 2 and it's working perfectly. Make sure, when you register a finger print, you clean the screen very well (and I recommend cleaning it after every touch while registering). Just keep using fingerprint unlock and it will only get faster from there. I also recommend just continually scanning the normal part of your finger when it says to scan the sides, as it will greatly help the scan speed. Please give this a try and respond if this works for you or not.

    I am using the PureGear screen protector from T-Mobile on the unlocked version of the 6T.

    I am having the very slow not working fingerprint issues on my 1+6t running 9.0.12. Rubbish fingerprint sensor.

    So maybe cleaning the screen helps, but who is going to clean their screen after every unlock. Not a practical solution.
    Would it be better without a screen protector?

    Make sure you understand the steps of how to register your fingerprint. It's vital. If the problem persists maybe your phone needs to be inspected by tech support furthermore.

    My OnePlus 6T sometimes does not respond to touch to unlock.
    Fingerprint unlocking does not always work.
