Samsung Galaxy S5 problem with Fingerprint

#1

Hello every one,

I have some issue with fingerprint. Im using Samsung S5 and
Expo.Fingerprint.hasHardwareAsync().then((result)=>{console.log(“hardware”,result)})
returns false, when i use IPhone S6 everything is ok.

Regards

hey, this is kind of a weird error because for some reason the default android api for handling fingerprints (which expo uses to make the javascript wrapper) doesn’t support some devices, one of which is the galaxy s5. It should work for newer devices.

annoyingly, it seems the only way to solve this right now is to detach your app and add a custom samsung library for supporting the device’s fingerprint as seen in this answer
