I'm sorry to learn you are having trouble using the fingerprint scanner, taterlalo. It's important that prior to using the scanner, your hand is dry and free of any moisture or oil, as this can cause issues with the scanner. You can go to Settings>Fingerprint>Change backup password, to edit your password.
