    I'm using Finger Scanner and changed the backup password...well, I changed the Lock screen password by accident. Now, the phone never locks even well past timeout period nor on power up. I went back and tried to fix my error but Lock screen setting app doesn't recognize the new password or the old one. And, when I figured out my error, I changed the backup password in the Finger Scanner setting app. Nothing seems to help.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    P.S. Android 6.0.1

    Clear all your cache on recovery, then try to change the back up password again..

    Recovery or factory reset? If recovery delete the data.

    I'm finally getting around to looking at responses...thanks for the ideas!

    I can't find a place to clear the finger scanner data. App Mgr doesn't have a clear data option for it. I did the recovery/clear cache and change the backup pw but it doesn't seem to help. I still see bubbles when I restart. Clear data is a bit bigger job and I'll try that but I have to make time to do some backup.

    Thanks again.
