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.

Yes. And i guess that's why it's broken.

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.

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)
