Unlock with Swipe, Fingerprints for Apps LG V20


AC Question

Is there a way to set the screen lock as Swipe but still have Fingerprints used for apps?

I setup the fingerprints and was playing around with the different screen lock methods, I was surprised that the phone actually erases all fingerprints if that option isn't used anymore. Ideally the fingerprints would be saved and still be used for certain password-protected apps, but I would think that at least the fingerprints would be saved if you choose to use them for screen lock again.

The T-Mobile V20 can.

go to settings
fingerprint and security
fingerprint (input pattern or code)
then scroll down to the bottom
turn off lock screen
leave lock content turned on
