    Hey guys,

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to reset my backup password on my S6. I can still unlock my phone just fine using my 2 registered fingerprints. But in the event I have both fingers chopped off for whatever reason, I'll be out of luck :-/ Can anyone help me out?

    What happens if you change the screenlock to something else (like password/PIN), then go back to fingerprint unlock? If it goes through the whole fingerprint unlock setup again, it should ask you to select a new backup password, and then enter it again for confirmation.

    Settings > Lock Screen and Security > under security tap "fingerprints" and use your finger for access, then towards the bottom is the "change backup password" option. Better add the other two fingers in case your first two get chopped off...or maybe do two fingers and two toes? Try your nose as a finger...bet it works! Unless you bite off your nose to spite your face! LOL
