Set up the fingerprint scanner

The fingerprint scanner provides a fast, convenient way to unlock your device, make purchases, or sign in to apps. When you set up the fingerprint scanner, you must also create a PIN, pattern, or password for times when your fingerprint can't be used.

CAUTION: You can't use your fingerprint to unlock your device when it restarts. Be sure to remember your PIN, pattern, or password.
