How can I get to my finger scanner which no longer shows on my lock screen?

AC Question

Only the alternative password screen shows on my lock screen and I cannot remember my alternate password.

What device do you have? At least on the Nexus 5X & 6P, you need to enter your PIN or pattern first when the phone is rebooted - there's no way to "force" fingerprint unlock until you've entered the alternate unlocking method.

I'm not sure how other phones with fingerprint readers work.

The only fingerprint-unlocker I have is an iPhone 5s, which does indeed require that after a reboot.
