Fingerprint scanner

You can quickly wake up and unlock the HTC Desire 19+‍ using your fingerprint. You can add up to 5 fingerprints.

When setting up and using the fingerprint scanner, follow these tips:

  • Make sure your finger and the fingerprint scanner are dry and clean.
  • Use the entire pad of your finger, including the sides and tip.
  • When recording your fingerprint, touch the scanner until it vibrates.
  • The fingerprint scanner has 360° readability—you can touch a recorded finger at any angle to the scanner to turn on the screen or unlock the HTC Desire 19+‍.
Note: You may not be able to set the fingerprint scanner to unlock HTC Desire 19+‍, if you've signed in to an Exchange ActiveSync account that requires you to set a different screen lock option (such as password). Check with your Exchange Server administrator if your Exchange ActiveSync account supports the fingerprint scanner.

Adding a fingerprint the first time

  1. From the Home screen, swipe up and then tap Settings > Security & location.
  2. Tap Fingerprint scanner > Next.

    If you haven't already set up a screen lock, you'll be asked to set one up. See

    Setting a screen lock.

  3. If prompted, choose how you want to show notification content when your phone is locked, and then tap Done.
  4. Touch the fingerprint scanner.
  5. Place your index finger on the fingerprint scanner to start scanning.
  6. Repeatedly touch the scanner until the fingerprint has been successfully recorded. You'll get the best results if you hold your finger in the same direction when touching the scanner.
  7. After you've successfully recorded your fingerprint, tap Done.
You can now use your fingerprint to wake up and unlock your HTC Desire 19+‍.
Warning: You'll need to input your backup lock screen pattern, PIN, or password if the scanner doesn't identify your fingerprint after five attempts.

Adding, removing, or editing fingerprints
