    Then, we simply place our finger on the home button and we lift the finger off.

    We continue moving our thumb, allowing our phone to scan the entire finger.
    It does take a moment. Once we've finished scanning the finger, we'll be given instructions to place the tip of the same finger on the home button and lift the finger off. We'll be adding our fingerprint to the image again and again.

    If we move the finger off too quickly, we'll get a message that our finger needs to stay on the home button longer.
    So, we keep the finger on the home key a little longer. We will successfully add our fingerprint.

    We will be asked to provide a back-up password.
    It needs to have six letters, including at least one letter and one number. It might be a good idea to put something short with numbers ending in a year. We enter the backup password. In this video, it is "visi15". Those are "visi" and "2015", which are easy to remember.
