There was a lot of excitement surrounding the Android Marshmallow update, but it looks like there are some glitches that Samsung needs to address immediately.

The primary problem that users of Samsung Galaxy S5 are facing with their update is that the phone is locking them out because of some faults in the password and the fingerprint security features.

The issue was first brought into the limelight when Reddit user said that his fingerprint was not recognized by the device and he couldn’t bypass the issue with the help of the backup password and Google sign in. It is important to mention that not all devices have faced this issue. There are a few devices which have gone through this and tech experts are suggesting that they hold off from updating their devices to the Android Marshmallow.
