Note 5: Marshmallow Issues

1. Battery draining at -1% every two minutes.

2. Prior to the update, only I could unlock my phone using fingerprint lock.  Now, even though I still have it set to that, anyone can unlock my phone by swiping.  (It updated security settings?? More like downgraded)

Are you sure it is just swiping the lock screen and swiping to get the pin or password security screen? Maybe change how soon the phone locks completely where it requires the fingerprint or the password/pin immediately.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
