    Default password change

    I have been using my fingerprint to access my phone but wanted to switch back to the password method but my password has been changed. Is there any way to find out what it is to change it back?

    On a side note, my S Health is junk. It keeps resetting itself so I can't track anything. Possible bad phone?

    Really wishing I hadn't switched from my iPhone now.

    Default Re: password change

    Welcome to Android Central! Which password are you talking about? I don't know the S5 interface in much detail, but if the Security settings are anything like the Nexus 5, I would imagine that changing the unlock from fingerprint to password would just require you to scan your fingerprint first (to confirm that you're the actual owner of the phone), then selecting a new unlock option. You should be able to select a new PIN or password--I don't think you have to enter your old one, since you already confirmed your identity with the fingerprint.
