    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.
