    I have two phones....iPhone for business and Note 5 for personal. On the iPhone, I was told to set up using thumbprint, which is fine, but I used my thumb for Note 5 and now I wish I had used my index finger instead.

    Can I change that? if so, how?

    thanks

    Settings>Lock screen and security>Fingerprints - just add another finger, I think you can have five stored

    Just add your index finger. I have my Note 5 set up to use both thumbs and index fingers.

    This.

    You can store 4 separate prints. Some people use the same finger for multiple slots as a way of increasing the number of stored variations and/or positions.

    I have both thumbs and both index fingers... and I named them accordingly, so I know which one to redo if it stops working reliably. So far, I've not had to redo any... always unlocks when I need it to.
