Hi there I am having a problem where my phone will unlock if I swipe over the fingerprint sensor without applying my finger there. I noticed that if I turn off the fingerprint unlock my phone will not unlock automatically. I have tried everything I can find on the internet. If I boot in safe mode the fingerprint option doesn't come up and therefore I unlock with my pin and it's fine. 

The only thing I haven't done is a hard reboot which I prefer not to if I can avoid it but I was hoping anybody had suggestions to help or had a similar problem. 

 

Thanks

Try swiping since where else. I think what is happening is that your are just waking the screen on by swiping.
Make sure stay unlock with location is turned of.
