    On my new S7 I have my fingerprint set up to unlock my phone. Though usually it takes more than one time to get in, sometimes locking my phone. This has happened many times, and just a second ago I accidentally locked myself out for 5 minutes. This is extremely annoying. How can I make it so that I can have more attempts to unlock before I get locked out? I have looked into the security settings and have not found much.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think it will allow you more attempts but you can try setting up your fingerprints a better. Use different positions that you may be in when trying to unlock your phone. Plus you can set more than one set of fingerprints to cover both hands if necessary. On top of that all if it still doesn't work well, it should offer a secondary way to get into your phone. I use a pattern on mine. You could use that last resort before you lock yourself out.

    Or have it checked. It's not supposed to be THAT picky.
