Is there a way to disable the touch function of the fingerprint scanner? It drives me nuts. At first i thought it would be ghosting but then i figured out that when i tab the fingerprint scanner it selects stuff on my launcher and in system settings.
Using Arrow Os 12 beta right now and before i had Ancient OS with the same "error". Before that i had Miui Oneos and it didnt have that "function". Is it just a bug of Arrow OS 12? Why did Ancient OS 5.6 which is still android 11 also have the same problem?
Any insight on this issue?
