Is there a way to avoid clicking on the centre button where the fingerprint scanner is. I would like to reconfigure the fingerprint scanner to go to home when brushed. Is that possible?


Not without rooting the phone, no.

    That means, the answer is actually, "Yes, if you're rooted". Meanwhile, could you provide the steps/reference to do this on rooted device?

  • And any apps that do that when rooted? Am I the only one annoyed (and lazy) by the clicking

  • No, my wording was precise. Without root it's not possible. With root it MAY be possible, but I'm unable to locate any appropriate apps to do so, and I suspect it's not. In reality, I don't believe there are any capacitive sensors in that button, so without pressing it, it's unaware that you're interacting with it.
