    Well I don't get on these forums often, so this could be a well known issue. I was playing around with my Note 5 ( sprint ), which I have the fingerprint scanner activated, and I noticed I can bypass the Fingerprint Lock screen! Yes, I can just skip over it! How? Press the home button and power button at the same time.

    If this is not a known issue, can anyone else confirm this on their Note 5? I have my fingerprint scanner activated for access to my phone. I pick up my phone.. turn it on.. when prompted with the lock screen to check my fingerprint, I just hit the home button and power button at same time and bam, i'm passed it.

    Omg I just tried this and it works... Wow I never even noticed :O

    Edit: nevermind. I just noticed that the finger print registers my thumb and that's why it unlocks even though i pressed both buttons at the same time. False alarm.

    Mine doesn't do that I tried it with the finger I don't have registered and it wouldn't unlock that way it prompted me to try again.
