Fingerprint scanner

The fingerprint scanner on the Note 4 sucks. I set it up and now I can't remove it because it's so difficult for it to recognize my fingerprint. I know how to remove it. I just can't get the scanner to recognize my print in order TO remove it. Each time I swipe my finger, it says do it differently. I do, then it says faster them slower, blah blah blah! Is there a way around this without resetting my phone! ?

Use the optional 6 digit code, which you need anyway to remove the fingerprint option. 

The scanner allows you to scan in 3 prints.  I scanned the same finger all 3 times to be sure.  One scan fails too often.

or you can change to another option for unlocking.
