Default Fingerprint sensor issues with a case

So if I run the phone naked, I have no issue with the fingerprint sensor. With an otterbox commuter it works maybe 10% of the time. I have it setup with my left thumb to an angle for one handed operation. Anyone else having issues with using a case and this? I realize the commuter is probably not the best to try this on.. I have a spigen tough armor coming on Thursday.

DONATE TO ME
I'm using a spigen tpu case and the bottom portion of the case kept getting in the way as well. I just turned off the fingerprint unlock.

I'm glad that worked out for you. To me, however, just turning it off is not acceptable.

I'm using Otterbox defender, it works most times for me, it does get a little difficult at times.

No fingerprint issues with my Tough Armor case. If nothing else, you'll have a solution soon!

How are you using the fingerprint sensor? If I follow how it does on the screen where you are registering it, it works better. But I would like to swipe it with my thumb one handed if possible.

I'm using it how it shows on the screen because I've always held my phone with my left hand and use it with my right...so my right index finger is registered.
