Since I installed a VPN (witopia) I cannot select finger scanner to lock/unlock phone any ideas? In lock options, all other options are inactive except pin and password.

How do I get my fingerprint scanner page to come back up?

I tried swiping my finger but it now permanently goes to the alternate password sign in and won't go back to scanning my fingerprint

Try restarting your device and see if that helps you reset your fingerprint unlock function. If that doesn't take, go into your lock settings and change the lock to a different option, and then back to Fingerprint. You can find instructions explaining how to change the kind of lock setup you have in the section labelled "Setup Fingerprint Lock on Samsung Galaxy S5."

Fingerprint scanner is not working?

When I set up the fingerprint scanner, it had me also set up an unlock digit pin. I forgot that pin and I never changed the settings but now it will not allow me to scan my fingerprint. It is only asking for the alternate password, I have only five tries left before it states it will reset my phone to factory settings, which means I lose all my stuff
