The cold is officially here. In the US, we spent a few days noticing a cold something more remarkable than previous weeks, so the most forceful clothes can be seen on the streets. Leaving home without a scarf and gloves is an achievement, especially in the first and last hours of the day. For a few years, we have seen how tactile gloves have become very fashionable, being a really necessary complement if you do not want to be cold in your hands and be able to use your mobile. These gloves work perfectly, but they have some drawback. Today we show you how to use the fingerprint sensor with gloves on. Of course, they must always be compatible with touch screens.
This type of gloves are cheap, easy to find and there are many types. In general, not all fingers or parts of the glove have this fabric compatible with touch screens. Only the main fingers have it, more than enough to use our device as we would without them. But with these gloves, there is something we can not do: unlock the phone by the fingerprint. But, sure we can not?
How to use the fingerprint sensor with gloves on
If our phone has a fingerprint sensor that is the home button at the same time, it will work, just like in touch controls. The problem with these gloves comes when we have to unlock the device. If we do not want to put a pin or the password, we will have to remove one of our fingers from the glove and put it on the fingerprint sensor and put it back inside the glove, something that is not advisable in polar cold weather.
But there is a very interesting method to unlock your phone fingerprint and with these gloves on. You just have to enter the security and fingerprint section and add a new finger or fingerprint. This configuration should be done with the glove on and as dry as possible since this is the most expensive part of the process. Little by little, we will have to configure our footprint with the glove on, a much more expensive and tedious than usual process. If we do, we will have a new fingerprint available, which will allow us to unlock the device by placing that finger on the sensor. Of course, always with the glove on.
Once it is configured, it works almost perfectly and it seldom makes us put our finger back. It is still a totally safe process since someone with that same glove or another different one will not be able to enter our mobile. Our normal footprint will continue to work when we do not have gloves since we have simply added one more instead of replacing it. This method works with front and rear finger sensors. The most expensive part is the configuration, but it is worth it to carry it out in order to unlock our mobile without losing the heat of the hands.
