Fingerprint Sensor Icon on Always On Display


In Samsung Galaxy devices with a fingerprint sensor, you can have the fingerprint icon always visible when the screen is off through the Always On Display. An alternative is to tap on the screen while it's off to make the icon appear. 

To enable either of those options:

  1. Tap into Settings.
  2. Tap Biometrics and Security.
  3. Tap on Fingerprints (type your pin code to access).
  4. Under Show icon when screen is off, select Tap to show if you don't have the AOD enabled, or select On Always On Display to have it visible at all times.
  5. You can also keep the icon off but keep the fingerprint functionality on at all times, even when the screen is off. On the same Fingerprints screen, enable Fingerprint Always On.

Create a simple text page where all your journal entries will be stored (no databases/tables). Optional: You may create a subpage to serve as an Archive for past entries. Again this should be a simple text page, not a database. You may also have multiple archives, named after the 12 months or years to keep things more organized. Type / , then template , then select the Template button . Give
