    Is there a way to bypass the slide to unlock while using the fingerprint scanner? I read something somewhere we I did it on the S6 but can't remember how to do it on the Note 5. I can see why you would need it for lock screen notifications but seems redundant if using the fingerprint ID. I want to be able to unlock the phone and input the fingerprint scanner right away to get to home screen. (note: removing the notifications lock screen still doesn't work). Thanks in advance.

    Odd.... Mine goes straight to the home screen once its unlocked with my fingerprint. You may want to go back and check your settings under lock screen.

    Lock screen and security settings. Select Fingerprint on lock screen, and again below under the security tab.

    Sorry I was not clear with my post. I was talking about the slide to unlock BEFORE fingerprint lock appears. There is an initial slide to unlock input that has be done before I can initialize fingerprint. That is the step I want to eliminate as it seems unnecessary.

    Are you using a 3rd party launcher? If so it may have its own lock screen setting? But if yer running stock or a launcher that doesn't have its own lock screen, then those instructions are correct. It should look like this.

    No third party. Just stock. My settings screen looks like yours. Here is what I have. First screen show the slide to unlock and then the second screen has the fingerprint scan. The fingerprint scan does not work until I slide to unlock the first screen. I would like to hit the home button then scan my fingerprint right away to get to home screen. Right now I need to slide to unlock first.

    I also have notification on lockscreen on if that matters.

    That is odd. I have a Verizon one, and mine works as intended, with no swipe required. How odd..

    Is your brand new from Verizon or used? I would do a factory reset and see if it removed it... It shouldn't be slide to unlock

    Notifications doesn't have anything to do with it, that just shows stuff like how many unread texts you got and stuff. If you have it on fingerprint, it definitely shouldn't be sliding to unlock first. Lets unlock it, so we can unlock it. Lol, no, that's not how it should work. I hate to say it, cuz setting up phones after ya get it like u want it sucks, but u may need to hard reset it.

    That lock icon is caused be a trusted device being connected. To remove it you have to disable the unlock when connected to a trusted device.

    I had the same problem, and finally figured it out. I don't think it is working as intended, and might just be a bug.

    Hope that helps.

    I was able to reproduce the problem. The reason I dont see it happen is I use a Samsung Follio case that turns the screen on when I open it.

    I can see how that would be annoying. I'll keep playing around with it to see if I can find a way around it.

    Or it might

    lock screen and security
    Other security settings
    Trusted agents
    And if Google lock is enabled, disable it

    And see if that removed that annoying lock icon.

    Also make sure under other security settings that you have no delay set for locking... set it to lock immediately.

    Thanks everyone for your help! It was the Settings > Smart Lock > On-body detection was on. I thought it was my trusted devices but eliminated them and still nothing. It now works how it should!

    I have done that went back and looked again it says "Lock the screen %s after it turns off automatically" So I have no idea why that is not staying on.

    Any update on this issue? I have tried all troubleshooting tips given with no resolve. At this point the only way to not have the slide lock screen with advertising (annoying) is to disable the lock screen. This is not a very secure process and I find this to be a major glitch with the phone. I either have to have no security or get advertisements and go through 1 more unnecessary step to open my phone. The other issue is not being able to root the phone to resolve this issue as well. Samsung should do something about this!

    Ever since I hooked up my moto watch, it started requiring the Swype and fingerprint also.
