    When you set up fingerprint screen lock, it also wants a Backup password (pin / pattern).

    Can you just use the fp and nothing else?

    No, you can't. The PIN is required after a startup or restart. It's also a backup in case the reader malfunctions or if your fingerprint isn't available. Example... I had only gotten around to registering one fingerprint when I sliced the pad of the important finger. Without the pin, I'd be locked out of my device.
