Samsung Galaxy Tab S is one of the best Android tablets available in the market today. If you configure the lock screen of Galaxy Tab S with password, you can bypass the fingerprint to lock and unlock the device. Android will recognize your fingerprint and will utilize it for verification, provided that you have registered and stored the fingerprint in the device.
To register fingerprint in the Galaxy Tab S, navigate to Apps > Settings and tap on the Device tab. From here, choose the Finger Scanner icon and then choose the Fingerprint Manager. Tap on OK if a Disclaimer pops up in your Galaxy Tab S and then scroll any finger over the fingerprint sensor eight times for the device to pick your fingerprint.
Note that if you use the tip of the finger only, the device may not be able to recognize your fingerprint, so scroll the finger completely over the fingerprint sensor.
