Lock and Unlock Samsung Galaxy S5's Screen Using the Fingerprint Scanner

Questions and Answers

Hi, as you can see I have a problem with my fingerprint lock?

I am using the fingerprint sensor on my phone as a means of unlocking it. Today for some reason, this feature just stopped working. It would just not let me even try to enter my fingerprint. It only let me enter my backup password which also would not accept for some reason as I'm sure enough of what my backup password is. This left me with my phone locked and not capable of doing anything. Google Android device manager can not help me as my phone is already locked and my Note4 with the new updated version of software cannot give me a chance to unlock my phone with my Google account details. Please help me. Thanks a lot !

How can I bypass backup password when finger scanner is not available in the lock screen?

I set my fingerprint scanner last two weeks. And now, when I saw my Note4, it only shows a backup password wherein my Note4 didn't ask for any backup password. Please Help. I really need to restore my files and data in the phone. I don't want to use factory reset.
