Title: Phone has all the sudden gone to a password screen instead of using fingerprint
Post by: imamuseoffire on May 20, 2019, 01:28:55 AM
Hello. A couple days ago I set up the Avast anti theft in my android phone. It was set to use fingerprint with numeric password as backup. I also input a pattern.  This afternoon,I went to use my phone and after taking the fingerprint,it said i needed to input the password as a backup for extended protection.  It brought up a different screen which wants a different password. I tried my numeric one and that's not it. I don't know what to do, someone please help.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the amazing help I received. It's too bad no one from here chose to even suggest any kind of fix. I see I'm not the only one. However, I did receive some actual help, and I'm back in my phone. Have a lovely evening.
