    Every so often when I take my phone out of my pocket to unlock via my fingerprint, the phone unlocks but then asks for my swipe pattern for added security. Seems odd.

    I know it has you do the swipe pattern after a reboot but I'm not sure why it would randomly ask for a swipe pattern.

    I have not experienced that problem, but I have a pin instead of a swipe. Maybe that makes a difference? I will add thought that occasionally my fingerprint will unlock the phone but the lock screen doesn't go away. I will still need to swipe up to get to the launcher.

    I have not seen this, and like @benhaube, I have a PIN for backup security--not a swipe pattern.

    The fingerprint unlock either works or it doesn't (99% of the time it works) for me--I have not had to swipe up to get to the launcher.

    BTW, my launcher is Nova Launcher, if that makes any difference.

    I have pin and I see this every 2-3 days probably. Wonder if it's related to using smart lock? (which I heavily rely on)

    I use smartlock at home only, but have never had to input my PIN other than when I first boot up.

    For a sec i thought that maybe the sensor was being activated while in my pocket. But if I try giving it multiple wrong fingerprints it just times out and gives a different message for swiping. It doesn't say added security.
