How can you create a duplicate fingerprint

Set up Touch ID on iPhone

You can use Touch ID (on supported models) to securely and conveniently unlock your iPhone, authorize purchases and payments, and log into third-party apps. All you have to do is press the home button with your finger or your thumb.

Before you can use Touch ID, you'll need to set a passcode on your iPhone.

Activate fingerprint recognition

  1. Select "Settings" > "Touch ID & Code", if you did not activate fingerprint recognition when setting up your iPhone for the first time.

  2. Activate any of the options offered and follow the instructions displayed.

If you activate the "iTunes & App Store" option, you will be asked for the password for your Apple ID when you make your first purchase in the App Store, Apple Books or the iTunes Store. You will be asked to use Touch ID on subsequent purchases.

Note: If you don't want to add a fingerprint or use Touch ID to unlock your iPhone, see the Apple Support article If Touch ID isn't working on your iPhone or iPad.

Add fingerprint

You can add multiple fingerprints (for example, thumb and index finger).

  1. Select "Settings" > "Touch ID & Code".

  2. Tap Add Fingerprint.

  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Name and delete fingerprint

  1. Select "Settings" > "Touch ID & Code".

    If you've added multiple fingerprints, touch the Home button with one finger to recognize and identify the fingerprint.

  2. Tap the fingerprint and enter a name (for example, “Thumb”) or tap “Delete Fingerprint” to delete it.

Unlock iPhone by touching it instead of pressing the Home button

Select "Settings" > "Accessibility"> "Home button" and activate the option "Hang up your finger to open".

Deactivate Touch ID

Select "Settings" > "Touch ID & Code" and deactivate one or more of the options offered.
