To delete or remove a fingerprint on your Samsung Galaxy A14, you’ll need to access the same menu that you used when adding the fingerprint. When you’re setting up a new phone, it’s a requirement to set up a lock screen. It might be a pattern, PIN, passcode, or fingerprint. This depends on which you prefer.
Mostly, you need to set up another failsafe when setting up a fingerprint, incase it malfunctions. In this case, you will still be able to unlock your phone with the other method, be it PIN, Password or Pattern.
This will also be useful when you want to perform an action such as deleting your fingerprint. It’s a security feature in the event that someone else other than you tries to perform the same function.
