Fingerprint shortcuts

The fingerprint scanner on Oppo F1s is not only lightning fast, it also brings with it some cool features.

You can register up to five fingerprints with it and with every fingerprint you can add an app shortcut or a particular contact.

So whenever you unlock your device with a fingerprint registered with a specific app, it will unlock the device and take you directly to that app. If it’s a contact that you have set as a shortcut, unlocking the device will initiate a call to that contact.

You can access these features from the fingerprint menu.
