Set up Fingerprint Unlock

Devices with a fingerprint scanner or sensor can also be unlocked without entering the specified unlock method (pattern/PIN/password).

For authentication, the fingerprint is registered and stored to subsequently allow access to the realme smartphone.

In addition to unlocking the device, the fingerprint can also be used for other purposes, such as Google Pay or purchases, as a quick verification of the device administrator is given.

Note: To be able to enable the fingerprint unlock, an unlock method with pattern, PIN or password must be set.
