How to set up the display of the in-screen fingerprint sensor icon

Display of the in-screen fingerprint sensor icon when the screen is off:

Smart display mode:

  1. Empowered by floating touch control technology, your phone is able to detect your finger and display the fingerprint sensor icon when your finger is less than 1.5 cm (0.59 in.) away from the screen when the screen is turned off. (You can also touch the screen to display the fingerprint sensor icon.)
  2. The fingerprint sensor icon will appear when you pick the phone up.

Non-display mode:

The fingerprint sensor icon will not appear when you move your finger towards the screen, touch the screen, or pick the phone up.

To set up the display of the in-screen fingerprint sensor icon:

Go to Settings > Security & privacy > Fingerprint ID > Fingerprint management > Other in-screen fingerprint settings > Display fingerprint icon when screen is off and select Smart or Do not show.

For devices running EMUI 9.X/Magic UI 2.X or later, Smart is used by default and cannot be changed.
