Default PayPal fingerprint problem

I have 3 fingers registered in settings that i use for screenlock. Every time i sign into PayPal, a notification shows up saying "enable a faster login by linking a fingerprint with PayPal, when I click that I need to sign in to my account and then swipe my finger, so I do that but then I always get this

But when i actually swipe my finger that little green orb says recognized but PayPal says unable to recognize...
How can i fix that?

Are you rooted? If so root breaks it.

Silly? I think fingerprint and privacy mode are really premium features of this phone Brava27. Guess it's a matter of personal taste, not silly :P

I'm rooted and experienced that. I just registered my finger print again in paypal login settings and it worked.
Phone: Galaxy S5 G900F
Stock unrooted

Default unlock with one hand

has anyone managed to use the fingerprint unlock with just one hand?

seems pointless to have to use 2 hands

Yes. Just register your finger print as you hold it in one hand and swipe your thumb sideways down the fingerprint reader. That's how I unlock my S5 after getting it out of my pocket..

Rooted phone isnt the problem.
PayPal fingerprint only works with Stock kernel (equal if rooted or unrooted)
