I tried that a few days ago. When I place my finger directly on the fingerprint logo, nothing happens. When I raise my finger upward, I receive a red "!" symbol over the fingerprint sign. Let's hope for the April update. I'm using the factory reset as a last resort. I worry about losing data/information if I do a full reset.
Has it been fixed with April update?Me too. I had the same as you with the red '!' symbol bit moving my finger even higher up the screen 'fixed' it for me. Will let you know if I get anything from Google 1 support.
I got my Pixel 6 Pro five weeks ago. Came from a 2XL. After registering my fingerprints I have not had any problems on the lock screen or getting into apps, until last week. A banking app gave me a problem. It took several tries to recognize my fingerprint. After that first incident, it happened again the next day. However, in trying to access the app, I mistakenly placed my fingerprint above the reader, BAM, I was in. Just like Jerry 5 noted above.
As well as using the Pixel 6 fingerprint scanner to open my phone, I had two app (LastPass and Toyota apps) that had a biometric in their apps that allowed me to open them using the phone's fingerprint scanner info. When I tried yesterday, neither app will open using their fingerprint biometric (while the phone still opens using the fingerprint scanner). My last update was March 5th and the app sign-on was working after the update. Does anyone have any idea how to remedy this situation?
