    I have a Samsung galaxyS6 and use a pattern as my unlock screen so I am therefore able to access my phone although I still use the fingerprint option for some app on my phone such as private mode. The finger scanner does not recognize my finger and keeps asking for my backup password which I can no longer remember.. How can I reset the backup password for my fingerprint?

    If you created a Samsung account you can unlock it through the Samsung website but an easier way is to keep putting the wrong backup password until it asks for the Google account associated with Google Play and its password. Hope this helps! Worked for me!
