Default Fingerprint scanner keeps disabling

Hi guys, i'm trying to use the fingerprint scanner but it seems after the first time i enable it and use it, it disables itself when i lock the screen again and try to use it. So after the first time it works fine, but then when i lock and try to unlock again it asks me to "swipe to unlock" rather than use the fingerprint scanner. so ultimately it changes to swipe unlock after the first time using the fingerprint sensor upon activating it in settings....is this an issue? im a samsung noobie btw

Did you adjust the security lock time out under the lock screen settings after you enabled the fingerprint lock?
