    Default FoxFix disabled my fingerprint reader. How do I get it back? (Galaxy s5)

    I installed foxfi and it wanted to set up a passcode to enable wifi tethering. This completely disabled my fingerprint reader!

    On the screen lock page everything is grayed out except "Pin" and "Password" option. I've completely unistalled foxfi, but I can't get back the fingerprint reader. What do I do?

    Go to Settings> Security and select Clear Credentials. This will remove the certificate that Foxfi installed and allow you to change back to fingerprint to unlock.
