I have always found the fingerprint scanner a pain in the butt on the Galaxy Tab S2, regardless of the security it offers. What doesn't help is that the case for my tablet is pretty tight round the scanning button, on top of which I use sandpaper a lot in my rehab work which means that I tend to sand my prints down while holding the paper, making it difficult for the reader to read the print on my first finger. In the past it hasn't been more than a mild annoyance, but this morning the tablet asked me if I wanted to update the Android software, and the result has been that I now have to deal with an even more annoying aspect where the OS won't offer me the option to key in the backup password, instead giving me a time delay to try reading my fingerprint again. I got it up to a five minute delay before I gave up in frustration - I'm essentially locked out of my tablet!
I either have to find a way to go back to the old version of the OS, or I need to find a means to disable the damned fingerprint scanner, which I'd prefer. Can anyone please point the way?
Thanks in advance
