Add fingerprint

Step 1:  Open the  Settings
Step 2:  Tap on  Biometrics & password
Step 3:  Tap on  Fingerprint ID
Step 4:  Tap on  Fingerprint management
Step 5:  Tap on  New fingerprint
Step 6:  Press the  fingerprint sensor  and follow the instructions on screen

Rename fingerprint

After the successful registration of a fingerprint we can rename the fingerprint directly, because the different fingerprints are named by default Fingerprint 1/2/3... If no name was assigned after registering, the fingerprint can be renamed afterwards at any time.
