Modern smartphones with fingerprint sensor can be locked or unlocked using fingerprint sensor but nokia 6.1 plus doesn't work like that. Fingerprint sensor is used to only unlock the phone. Just noticed there is a simple method to lock the phone that is 'Swipe Up' in the home screen. There is no settings for this to enable. I am using nova launcher, not sure whether it is due to the launcher.

Anybody can try and update your feedback here.

    Fingerprint sensor is meant for UNLOCKING the device, power button is for locking.


    Regarding gestures, in nova launcher you can change the gesture to lock, I personally use double tab

    @fmukbil97 Yes, it is due to nova launcher. In previous mobile, I am used to the fingerprint sensor to lock/unlock screen. 6.1 plus doesn't work like that but now, due to the nova launcher I can just swipe up in the home screen to lock it. :)
