Re: Will fingerprint reader with with a tempered glass screen protector?

2019-06-22, 17:30 PM

I’ve never had good luck with Verizon brand glass screen protectors. I have had the same issue. They crack within days and I didn’t even drop the phone nor am I rough on phones. 

 

But anyway, I’m posting to share good news! The zagg invisible shield elite glass screen protector sold by Verizon does indeed work for me with the fingerprint scanner (and very well at that). I’m very pleased with this.

 

I have had good results with this brand in the past as well. Plus it’s got a lifetime guarantee if you register it.

 

And if you suck at putting on screen protectors (like me) you can take it to a Verizon store and they will put it on for you (although you probably need to purchase it from Verizon to get this perk, I believe)! I don’t see it sold anywhere else but on Verizon’s website. It’s $40 but worth it for me for peace of mind. 

 

You can can find it here:

Thanks Missy! This is the screen protector we currently recommend. We will add others once we have any approved.

Hi Matt,

Can you comment on the Skinomi - Tech skin?  I have always used this type of screen protector on my phones.

Did you happen to contact Skinomi and ask them?  They have a Contact Us button on their site, and a toll free number to call and speak to their customer service.  I did and asked if their scrren protectors work with optical in screen fingerprint readers.  I have not heard a response yet.  They make great products and are well known for their quality.  I just wonder about that dual layer technology they use with their protetcors and if it will interfere.

Will put it on and post tonight - playing with a screen protector at work would look unproductive :-)

Just FYI...according to Skinomi customer support their screen protetcor "will be compatible with the fingerprint sensor.  The tech skins have a full adhesive backing so it can properly adhere.... touch sensitivity is affected by gaps between a protector and the screen."  Good deal, hopefully that is truly the case and these work very well.

Ok... Drumroll please...

 

The Skinomi is AWESOME with the sensor!!! Previously, with the tempered glass, the sensor got about 70% success with my thumb entered 5 times. Now? The thing is entered 4 times and IT CANNOT MISS. And, it responds faster. No question, hands down, go with the Skinomi.
