Fingerprint Scrolling

While lying down in bed last night, I thought it would be very useful to have the ability to browse (scroll) Chrome from my Pixel XL's fingerprint scanner - on the back of the phone. This helps me not drop my phone on my face

Behavior could be something like, this (Pseudo-code):

Code:
if gesture_direction == UP:
  scroll_down()
elseif gesture_direction == DOWN:
  if scroll_view_position > 0:
    scroll_up()
  else:
    notification_display() // What currently happens on my Pixel (show notification screen)
Unless there are any glaring issues with this, I was going to investigate how to compile and run custom ROMs on an emulator so I don't make my daily-driver unusable during development.

Thoughts?
