Delete a Fingerprint on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Edited by Grimm, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to delete or remove fingerprints from the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to delete or remove fingerprints, we need to have our phone unlocked.
We should be on the home screen.
Once we are on the home screen, we swipe down from the top of the phone.
The notifications panel will be shown. On the upper-right side, we will see a white gear-shaped icon. It accesses the "Settings" panel.
We tap on the gear-shaped icon once.
We will open "Settings".
We locate "Lock screen and security".
If we don't have "Lock screen and security" in "Quick settings", we scroll down to "Personal".
Then, we look for "Lock screen and security".
When we find it, we tap it once.
We are going to move to the "Security" section and tap on "Fingerprints" one time.
After tapping on "Fingerprints", we will be asked either to enter our backup password or press our finger against the home button.
We press our finger against the home button.
We will access the "Fingerprints" section. We have to note that having more than two fingerprints degrades the performance of the phone. Specifically, it won't operate fast when looking for fingerprints. This is because the phone has to check against all of the fingerprints (three, four, or five) that we may have stored. It is advised to have no more than three fingerprints. Preferably, no more than two.
From "Fingerprints", we tap on the "EDIT" option if we would like to delete a fingerprint.
Once we've tapped on "EDIT", we check a fingerprint.
In this video, "Fingerprint 3" is checked.
Then, we can simply tap on "REMOVE".
We will be asked to confirm that we would like to remove the fingerprint.
We may tap on "REMOVE".
The selected fingerprint will be deleted.
We tap the applications button.
We tap the "x" to close the application.
We'll be taken back to the home screen.
