Fix OnePlus 2 Fingerprint Sensor

If you’re having trouble setting up the fingerprint sensor on your OnePlus 2 device then you can rest a while because this tutorial will help you fix any problem that you may encounter while customizing the fingerprint scanner on the device. More than likely, there isn’t really a problem, but more like a lack of correct settings.

The developers for the OnePlus device have installed a pretty strict procedure for setting up the fingerprint sensor and as such one mistake can lead to the feature not functioning at all. Let’s get into fixing the fingerprint sensor issue on the OnePlus 2. Before you move on, it is important that you update to the latest Oxygen OS 2.0.1.  The new update patches the StageFright vulnerability. Click update if you haven’t updated as yet.


The first thing you have to ensure is that you have successfully linked your Gmail/Google account to your device. This MUST  be done prior to setting up the fingerprint scanner and you must register the Gmail account on the initial setting up of your OnePlus 2 (a weird bug) but the only way to use the feature if you hadn’t linked the services is to factory reset your OnePlus 2.

Once you’ve done so, then you must do the setup again, adding your gmail ID this time around. Don’t skip it during setup or the fingerprint scanner won’t work.

That’s all there is to it. Once the hard reset is done, the OnePlus 2 will take you through the initial setup again. Just ensure that you register your Gmail account, and then move to register your fingerprint. It should work fine now. Let us know in the comments below if you’re still having trouble after trying the above fix. Enjoy using one of the best fingerprint scanners on the market.
