Well - I downloaded and installed just to see. The only log in options are "Email and Password" or "Mobile phone and PIN". I don't see fingerprint as an option anywhere....

It has apparently been hacked, so perhaps for the better.

Yes. you are right.

From 3 days ago..
PayPal announced that its fingerprint-based authentication system was live in 25 countries. Users will be able to authenticate their digital purchases on PayPal by swiping down on the home button. The idea is a novel way of extending the functionality offered by the fingerprint sensor. However, it looks like all carriers are not going to have this feature enabled. Droid-Life discovered that the PayPal authentication feature was disabled in Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S5. It is unclear as to why Verizon would disable this functionality, given that it is the only carrier who seems to have removed this feature. users trying to install a fingerrint-based authentication client on Verizon’s Galaxy S5 are being shown a message that says “this application will not work on your device.”"

Accessing the stock "Samsung Apps" through the "Galaxy App" widget directs to a completely different, unsearchable store. Why why why Samsung? See Attached screenshots (one searchable, one not)

To clarify the steps that I used to install Paypal, and link fingerprinter verification to it,
1> To get an actual searchable Samsung App Store, download the "Samsung Apps Mobile" from the phone via www.samsungapps.com or HERE (This BS is what was holding me up)
2> Install the PayPal app via the Samsung App Store (first uninstall the Paypal app if previously installed via Google Play Store)
3> Search and install NNL from the Samsung App Store
4> Open Paypal>Settings>Login Options>Register Fingerprint.

Not sure if this is going to work, but here are some backup .apk's I just made from my phone, and put em on Google Drive.

PayPal App from the Samsung Apps Store

Did NNL find a way around it not working or did Verizon change their minds?
