    My S5 is only asking for the alternative password to unlock the phone. The fingerprint scanner wouldn't work anymore, and I had forgotten my google account password and alternative password. Since then, I have regained access to my google account, and used the Android Device Manager, but I associated my account to a different phone in the interim, and the Device Manager is now looking for the interim phone instead of my S5. Any way to re-associate my google account with the S5 since it was my previous device?

    Welcome to the forums!

    Add it to your phone and have it sync.

    I use the same account on both my phones and ADM can locate both of them.

    Also go to your Google app and the location and turn off location for that previous device.
