I developed an App called Fingerprint Scanner Actions, because I never understood why I could use my fingerprint scanner only for unlocking my device or other security reasons.
I mean, this is an additional button... it should be used like one.
Fingerprint Scanner Tools is an Android App that makes it possible to execute certain actions when you touch your fingerprint scanner and your device is unlocked.
This App is available from Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
Famous actions that can be executed:
- Open app-shortcut
- Execute a Tasker task
- Toggle the quick settings/notification panel
- Launch the default camera app
- Start the flashlight
- Launch a certain app
- Turn off the screen (3 different methods)
- Take a screenshot
- Same as above
Learn how to create custom fingerprint actions with tasker - you will be able to do ANYTHING possible in our big and wide android world.
My friend Mat from NotEnoughTech created an awesome tutorial how to do that. Have fun!

Q: Why is my notification bar expanding so slow?
A: This is a bug in Android 6.0. Please try this workaround:
- Enable developer options
- In Developer Options go to "Animator duration scale" and set it to 0.2x (you can set it also to 0, then it is going down super fast)
- Lock and unlock your device for it to take effect
A: Please use another screen off method, you can choose it in the app. Android prevents us to unlock the device with the fingerprint when it has been locked with the so called DevicePolicyManager. They said that they don't want this feature to be misused.
