    I am trying to set my fingerprint, every time i do so - im requested to add another - pattern/PIN/password along with the fingerprint.

    after i set the pattern (for example) with the fingerprint,
    everytime i turn on the tablet, im getting the pattern on the screen, although i can also use the fingerprint bypassing the pattern... i still want to be able to use only my fingerprint without the pattern also showing...
    any thoughts??

    The backup is in place as a precaution. Just in case is for whatever reason your fingerprint isn't granting access.

    Welcome to Android Central! The backup password is very important to remember, because the phone will prompt you to enter it in other situations as well, as outlined in this help page:

    "For security, you'll need to use your backup PIN, pattern, or password:
    • When your fingerprint isn't recognized after a few tries
    • After restarting (rebooting) your device
    • After switching to a different user on the device
    • After more than 48 hours have passed since you last unlocked using your backup method"
