    Default Resetting Fingerprint scan

    Anyone know how to reset your fingerprint once it's been set as security? I can turn it off and back on. But I can't find a way to re-run the setup...

    Found it! Under Settings -> Fingerprints. You can add or delete your prints.

    On the Samsung Galaxy 5, the reset feature is in settings. Look for an icon that says finger scanner. You can unregister, register or reregister.

    Hope this helps

    My carrier is T-Mobile (don't know if that makes a difference or not) and this is how I do it on the S5:

    Settings > Finger Scanner > Fingerprint manager > enter alternate password if set (select Done) > tap the 3 dots in the upper right and select Deregister > select print to deregister and tap the trash can > tap OK

    Now you can add a new fingerprint in place of the one you deregistered. Hope that helps!

    I'm following this thread on how to reset the fingerprint scan. My problem is that there must be something missing on my fingerprint settings...I do not have the three little dots at the top corner, to access the deregistering part...any thoughts???
