    I have the fingerprint sensor programmed for my thumbs. That way whichever hand I pick up the phone with it is easy to unlock.

    This feature alone is an amazing productivity / connectivity enhancement. No more typing in my security code except on reboots.

    Love this phone. Now just give me BBM dark theme!

    Well, I wish that I could tell you that this is a unique BlackBerry feature. However, it isn't. I agree with you though, its a great feature. And the sensor on the KeyOne works exceptionally well.

    So far, it does seem to be working really, really well. I had it on my last Android phone and it was something that I missed with the Z30 and Passport - both excellent devices without it, nonetheless!

    What I like also is the placement. It is so convenient to have the sensor middle bottom front of phone. Perfect spot for thumbs while holding one handed.

    it works well but I wish there was a 2way factor because fingerprints aren't considered passwords.

    Lol oh how I remember a time in here when thumbprint readers were a "gimmick" and had no use, and were security threats. My how the times have changed lolol.

    I have a conventional password to start. The other really useful feature is to double touch to lock down. very useful if you leave your phone in an open office.

    First time using a fingerprint sensor and I must say I love it. Great spot for it and it does not inhibit the space key in anyway.

    There's additional options to also set up a PIN etc. I've also got a PIN set up.
