It's really simple actually, everyone is giving all these download this and that stuff. Just go to the settings, go to "finger scanner" , click that it will show your registered fingerprints, delete all those and vala it's like it resetted. Now just scan your Finger again of you want, and this time register with your name

And How are you supposed to do that?! ....when you can't access the cell?........your phone is locked and the only way to unlock it is with the alternated password that you forgot........

You have two options: 
 
Remove all traces (going to settings & long press on finger printing, selecting remove) and recreate them. This will also remove alternate password. 
 
Go to Device Manager Androidy configure the remote lock & delete feature if you have not already. Once the installation program to use the lock function to reset your password. This allows you to change your "unlock screen" password.

Sign in footprint, and eliminates the registered fingerprint (you have to run your finger ... if it's not, cancel and re-enter, never ami I get to the first), then the sign up again and put the new pass. 
With what you ask footprint 1 letter apart from the numbers. 
Ami same thing happened to me, I forgot the pass .... ye had to do that . 
Greetings from !!!!!

My problem is this:
I was recording the tracks and password recovery and gave an error and told me if I was returning to leave this error restart. I rebooted and the problem is that there is a mark registered with the corresponding password, but does not detect my finger or my password. the problem is that this system is not active. that is, if I try to activate the lock footprint, asking me footprint, does not recognize, I ask for the password, not recognized and I can not activate the lock footprint, but I can not remove the footprint there recorded and password. it seems to have to delete the whole system, but I am too lazy to do that. I have the version of android is 5.0

Delete all the fingerprints registered (verifying by fingerprint or alternative password) inside the Fingerprint manager (settings->Finger Scanner). When all registered prints are removed (long pressing and deleting each registered print), the lock screen will go back to swipe.

samsung has released an updated version of its flagship, the new product called Samsung Galaxy S5 and also has a biometric fingerprint scanner. Moreover, unlike the devices Apple, S5 supports the use of the sensor in the application. So, the first authorized mobile wallet application was PayPal , which using fingerprint authentication can confirm the commission payments and transfers. skeptical group CCC has repeatedly stated that all existing at the moment (2007) fingerprint scanning technology are vulnerable and can be easily fooled using ingenuity and household tools. Fingerprint in SGS5 - is no exception. Team SRLabs , also earlier focus on the problems of authorization fingerprint , this one did not have to invent entirely new technique - Ready PVC molds, remaining after experimenting with the scanner 5S, excellent work and on the scanner SGS5 ( cm. video ). Thanks the fact that the Samsung device does not provide an explicit request the password after N failed attempts to scan the finger, the attacker has all the chances and unlimited time to experiment with molds and your wallet. The company's plans for the implementation of this type of authorization to different payment applications can make the sensor of this hole in your pocket.

This is all good and well but I CANNOT get in to my fone anymore because it is asking for the alternative password which i do not remember because I have not had to use it since October. So how am I suppose to get into my fone to reset anything. I have turned it off, on, taken out the battery and when I went on to android manager it did not find my mobile, only my tablet. I do not want to lose all my data! Im going crazy and I really need my fone as I am starting new job tomorrow!!!!!!! Help!!!!!!!
