    Default Lock screen password or finger print scanner wont enable?

    Hey guys, I just got my S5. I am trying to add a much needed added layer of security to the device through either a password or finger print. I have gone through the process of enabling both, each time when I return the lock screen it is not enabled?? Settings clear show it is on.

    I restarted the device, upon restart the finger print scanner was enabled upon restart. but once i return back to the lock screen it is gone. Anyone know why they wont stay enabled or enable at all?

    EDIT - Nevermind! figured out it was set to only enable after 10 mins of no activity.
    Thanked by:
