    To get quicker unlocking from a blank screen...

    Settings > tap search icon in top right > type "optimize battery usage" in search bar > tap "optimize battery useage" until you get to the apps screen > tap to show all apps > go to com.samsung.android.biometrics > toggle this off.

    Found this on Reddit, & seems to cause no issues & it works.

    I hardly have any issues with the fingerprint scanner to begin with, but from a blank screen, yes...it unlocks quicker.

    Great find. Thank you. Fingerprint sensor works even better when the screen is off.
