Hello,
I updated my Note 5 last night to the latest update from sprint and now unlocking the phone with fingerprint does not work if i use greenify to lock the screen. Prior to the update, also on android 6.0.1, i was able to lock the phone using greenify and unlock with my fingerprint. How can i fix this?

Thank you

Try removing and re-adding finger to the security setting

I had the same problem and solved it by enabling the 'Alternative screen off mode' in the Greenify settings. And I also made Greenify a device administrator. Now the fingerprint scanner unlocks the lock screen on my device (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) again. It may not work on some devices it says in the setting.

Thanks a lot for the tip, it solves the issue in mine Redmi Note 4x (Mido), with the [ROM][OFFICIAL][8.1.0][MIDO] Pixel Experience [AOSP][r1].

+2 years later with Greenify 4.7.1 this tip is still helpful thanks!
