All my previous smart phones had keys and the unlock key was a large button
in the center of the navigation ring. My Nokia 6.1 Plus has no keys yet has
two options for unlocking it: a numeric password or a fingerprint.

Now the fingerprint is disabled and I use a 4-digit password. Seems to me
using the fingerprint would be quicker and easier. Based on your experiences
with Andriod phones are there security reasons to select one unlocking
method over the other?
