    Nexus 6P and 5X owners experiencing fingerprint issues after March security update
    New reports are coming in from Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners that their fingerprint sensor is acting a bit off after receiving the March security update. The issue makes the fingerprint scanner appear completely responsive and seems to come and go at random. There's no word on if a fix is coming from Google, but there are a couple of workarounds you can try in the meantime.

    I've had one unexpected incidence with the fingerprint reader after updating my Nexus 6P earlier this week. After the locked screen showed too many tries, I waited about 30 sec and the reader worked again as expected. Otherwise, no problems with the update.
