I have retake and redone at least one to two finger prints and still it blinks followed by red exclamation circle and locked out some of my apps because of this nightmare through the screen scanner, Verizon person set up my phone with screen protector and case which I'm happy with but is it the screen protector zagg invisible shield. Do I remove the screen protector or will it make a difference on reading the fingies!?

has the screen been replaced ?


Nope Brand new!


@Harley Middleton i would move the protector then to see if it sorts out the issue


@tech_ni Will have to try this and update if this works, I'm sure it's the screen protector and the list of screen protector for the current Pixel line after 6 some models have some issues with screen protector. Thanks for another perspective on this issue.


Thank You for all who giving me me suggestions and advice, I have removed the screen protector and it works with no issues, So next time when getting a new device I will make the decision on my own for accessories for my device so I don't have issues. Take Care Cheers!

I have a Pixel 6 Pro with a screen protector on it. At first I was having difficulty with fingerprints getting recognized, but I deleted and reentered my fingerprints a couple of times until it finally started recognizing my finger reliably. I'm not sure if it's that or the fact that I had to replace my screen protector at least once due to it getting cracked, but between those two occurrences it finally started working well.

I do note that my screen protector actually has a clear circular area above the fingerprint reader that has a distinctly different appearance than the rest of the screen, presumably for the sake of the fingerprint reader.
