  2. If you haven’t already set up a lock screen pattern, PIN, or password, you’ll be asked to set one up
  3. Tap +Add fingerprint
  4. Choose which finger to use, touch the scanner until it vibrates, then lift your finger
  5. Repeatedly touch the scanner until the fingerprint has been successfully recorded
  6. After you’ve successfully recorded your fingerprint, tap Add Another or Done
