Samsung Galaxy S5 How to delete saved fingerprints


If you use the finger scanner on your Samsung Galaxy S5, then you can register up to three fingerprints. With these, you can then unlock the Samsung Galaxy S5 over the finger scanner. If you now want to enroll a new fingerprint, you must first delete an existing fingerprint in the manager of the Samsung Galaxy S5.

We show you how to delete a fingerprint on the Samsung Galaxy S5 now here in our article:

Open at first the menu from the home screen and then the Settings. Navigate here to:

Finger Scanner -> Fingerprint Manager

You find yourself now in the fingerprint manager of the Samsung Galaxy S5. Here press long on one of the registered fingerprints until they can be selected. You can either select all fingerprints or only one fingerprint. Select the fingerprints, you want to delete and then tap on the top right at the trash can icon to delete the fingerprint.

Ready! You have now successfully removed a fingerprint on your Samsung Galaxy S5.
