How to get out of fingerprint mode for "lock screen and security" for Galaxy 6S

Turns out you don't delete fingerprint mode as much as you override or replace it. There is no "delete" for it. Go to "settings">"lock screen and security">"fingerprints">> this brings up a small screen with the fingerprint symbol and "backup password" symbol. Put your fingerprint on the "home" button just as you would to open up the screen. It will read your fingerprint then will open up the other options on the screen. look for the "screen lock type" setting that says "Swipe" below it. Touch that "swipe" box and swipe will become your new screen security and will disable the "fingerprint" security. I have done this on two new Galaxy 6S phones and it has worked. They have not reverted to the "fingerprint" mode.
