You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to rename a fingerprint on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to rename a fingerprint, we need to have our phone unlocked
Once our phone has been unlocked, we swipe down from the top of the phone
Swiping down will open the notification panel. On the notifications panel, we will see a gear-shaped icon on the right side. This is the "Settings" icon.
We tap on the "Settings" icon one time
Once we've tapped the icon, we'll be taken to the "Quick settings" section at the top.
We can tap "Lock screen and security" in the "Quick settings" section
Alternatively, we scroll down
Under "Personal", we tap on "Lock screen and security"
We'll be taken to the "Lock screen and security" panel.
From the "Lock screen and security" panel, we tap on "Fingerprints" once
Once we've tapped on "Fingerprints", we place our fingertip on the home button
After we do that, the "Fingerprints" menu panel will be shown. We are going to rename our fingerprints on this panel.
To rename a fingerprint, we'll tap on a fingerprint
Let's tap on "Fingerprint 2", for example, which was used in this video.
For example, we rename "Fingerprint 2" to "LI", as the left index finger is used
We tap on "RENAME". The fingerprint will be renamed.
Let's tap "Fingerprint 1"
We rename "Fingerprint 1" to "RT"
That stands for "Right thumb".
By looking quickly at the screen, it will be known that the right thumb ("RT") and left index ("LI") finger profiles are used. This tells about the two fingers used to unlock the phone.
When we have finished renaming, we can tap on the "Fingerprints" back button
Alternatively, we tap the back button on the phone
Otherwise, we simply just press the home button
We'll get back to the home screen.
