Bypass fingerprint option Moto G4Plus

Moto G4 Plus fingerprint to open phone: My husband has essential tremor and is having great difficulty with the fingerprint option not opening the phone. I would like to be able to skip that step and go straight to the pin number screen, which is set up for speech. Thanks for any help.

Hi, I feel for your husband, I work with an organization called HopeNet ( that works with people with ET. I know the impact it can have. You should be able to turn off the fingerprint step by going to Settings – Security – Fingerprint You’ll then need to enter your PIN. Touch Fingerprint and “Delete”. Once all fingerprints are deleted, only the PIN will work or be needed to unlock phone.
