Fingerprint unlock won't work after adding 3rd fingerprint to Note 8

Recommended Posts

Fingerprint unlock won't work after adding 3rd fingerprint to Note 8. I had my wife add her fingerprint to my existing 2-fingerprints (5-limit) and now it keeps saying 'Fingerprint not available at the moment'?

Hi.  Not sure that Evernote has any input to that - have you tried using the extra fingerprint when opening any other application?  You may need to take that up with your mobile service provider...

All other banking/Samsung apps that use fingerprints work just fine. None of them say they just quit accepting fingerprints totally.

Hmmn.  OK if this is an Evernote only issue,  then I guess the app isn't quite as integrated into the Note 8 OS as it should be.  What version of  Android does it run?

I'd suggest you reach out to Support directly if you're a paying customer on  https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new or tweet them if not via https://twitter.com/evernotehelps

Mine is 7.1.1 with Android security patch November 1, 2017 and Samsung Experience 8.5.

..And again Hmmn...  Back to the Support suggestion I think - there (probably) won't be an instant fix,  but they'll add it to the list of Android bugs to squash...

I am also experiencing exactly the same issue after removing one of my fingerprints on my Note 8!

I have removed and added fingers again, restarted phone, disabled and enabled 'unlock with fingerprint' option, but nothing happend, it still says "fingerprint not available at the moment"!

Hey guys.

It has been fixed after updating my Note 8 android system to Oreo today. It's working fine with all added fingers. but I haven't added any new finger after update!
