How to set up the fingerprint sensor on Honor 8

by John_A


Fingerprint sensors are a great addition to any phone; they allow you to secure your phone while still easily accessing it with just resting your finger on it. Getting a fingerprint sensor set up on the Honor 8 isn’t hard, and only take a few minutes to complete. You can set up the fingerprint sensor when you are setting up the phone for the first time by following the prompts on the assistant, but if you skipped that there is another way to do it.

Even if you have already set up the fingerprint sensor, you can follow these simple steps to add another or remove a fingerprint on your phone.

From the notification shade, tap the Settings icon.
Tap Fingerprint ID.

Tap Fingerprint management.


Enter your pin if prompted.
Tap New fingerprint under the Fingerprint List.

Press your finger against the sensor and follow on screen prompts.


You can add up to five different fingerprints to unlock your phone. Once you’ve enrolled a fingerprint you can click new fingerprint again to add another. After you’ve added the ones you want to use, you can then use them to unlock your phone without entering a password or pin each time.
