Questions and Answers

How do I disable the fingerprint lock/unlock on my Samsung Galaxy S5? It takes too many swipes to recognize me?

It takes too many swipes to access my phone with the fingerprint recognition. How do I disable it? If I try to de-register or change the screen unlock feature it just keeps asking for my fingerprint to be swiped. If I try to de-register, it tells me I can't because fingerprint is set as the screen lock type for encrypt phone and Exchange Activesync.

How do I remove PIN when accessing my Facebook App, Gallery App, Email App and Camera?

Sometime, it looks like I accepted an APP that had me put in a PIN in order to protect a few of my other APPS (such as Facebook, camera, Gallery, Email, etc.). It is very frustrating when you take a picture and you're ready to take the next one, but you can't because you have to enter the PIN again. Same thing with Facebook; if I go into a friend's posting in order to put in a comment, or read other friends' comments, I have to re-enter the PIN.. . When my phone was in sleep mode, I had to enter a PASSWORD in order to unlock it (which I don't mind doing). Because I was having issues with my APPS in having to put in a PIN each time I want to access them, I changed the settings on my phone so that I no longer put in a PASSWORD but simply swipe my phone to open It.. . HOW DO I REMOVE the feature that requires me to put in my PIN each time I want to access my APPS?. I have tried: Just about everything.. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure. I most likely received an Email that said I should put in a PIN every time I want to access Facebook, Camera, Gallery, Email so that no one can access those if I should lose my phone.

No idea how I put the pin lock on my PC, guess I just pressed something by mistake?

I never had a PIN before so no idea of what could be. Tried 0000 and 1234, no work

Well maybe ,I changed the screen lock to pin pad in my pocket ,there is no pin ,just a letter I draw on the screen ,shape of a G?

I don't want to reset phone ,its too important ,need to unlock phone asap ,went to Verizon ,they couldn't help. They had a pin set up from what I think I read they had a pin. I have tried: Holding EMERGENCY CALL/ entered some digits /went to Verizon. I think it was caused by: I believe it happened in my pocket while working and changed from draw a pattern to pin lock
