Setting Up the TouchID in the iPhone 8

Just like with the passcode before, setting up TouchID requires only simple steps to follow. You should be able to get things taken care of without the help of others. Still, there are more things to do to get things done here. Since they are worth doing to ensure the safety of your privacy inside your iPhone, it is worth your time learning the way of how to do it in this opportunity. Since there are more things to do, let’s start then.

Setting up the TouchID is where you will finally have the fingerprint set for your iPhone’s security lock. Once you are done setting up the passcode before, you can immediately continue on to this procedure here. Here is what to do to get your fingerprint scanned by the iPhone, so it can be the password to lock/unlock your iPhone.

  • Go to the Home screen and tap Settings

  • Find the Touch ID & Passcode and tap it

  • Type in the passcode you made before to access the settings

  • Tap Add Fingerprint…

  • Touch the Home button for it to scan your fingerprint

The Home button houses the fingerprint scanner after all. To get your fingerprint memorized by the iPhone, you will have to touch it with your finger. It is not like single tap will do to get the job done though. Here is what exactly you need to do to get your fingerprint properly scanned by the scanner. Make sure you do everything right.

  • Lift then replace your finger on Home button

  • Move your finger a bit between touches to capture the mid print

  • Fingerprint edge scanning will be prompted if succeed

  • Tap Continue and do the scanning again

  • Tap Continue once more if your print is captured

Now that you are done with that, you need to find the switches located right at the top of the screen of Passcode Lock. Here, you just need to choose just which function that will work with the Touch ID. Once you do that, you are done setting up this fingerprint iPhone lock for your device. As it was said before though, you can add more than one fingerprint. But, you will be limited to 5 fingerprints only.

To begin with, there is no need for many fingerprints, right? Just stick to one or two that will do best for you. Also, you can actually name each fingerprint scanned and set up in your device. All you need to do so is to tap its name and you will be prompted to type the new name. If it is necessary for you, then there is nothing wrong about renaming the fingerprint yourself. To make the most of the feature, you just have to do what you really need to do for your needs. So, go ahead and try doing it.
