    Hello, i've had this OP7Pro for a while now and one thing has regularly bugged me. I have both a passcode and a couple registered fingerprints set up to unlock my phone. Why does it and why would it regularly require me to use my passcode and not even give me the option to use my fingerprint? How is my numerical passcode more secure than a rather heavily scanned fingerprint?

    At least every 72h you would need to unlock with the passcode. This is built into android specifications and the fingerprint API as far as I know, and thus cannot be changed.

    They probably making sure no one is using your dead body to unlock the phone.
