Use the fingerprint sensor as a camera

Friends of now it is customary to find the fingerprint sensor on even low-end phones and on many we often find one convenient function to use the same as an additional shutter button for photos, especially for i Selfie.

But on other terminals, unfortunately, this function is disabled, either by choice of the manufacturer, or by alternative ROMs installed on the smartphone that do not include this feature.

For example I am a happy possessor of one Xiaomi Redmi 3S with the latest ROM released by the team installed MIUI.IT, and the fingerprint sensor is infallible by unlocking the 10 device times on 10. Yet I can not use it to take pictures and make selfie with my friends or with my children.

I think some of you will have my own problem and feel the need for this feature on my device so I decided to share with you a small escamotage to enable the fingerprint sensor to take selfies and photos.

I state that the application I will use will not work with your camera stock app on MIUI ROMs is therefore necessary use third-party applications such as OpenCamera.

So what are you waiting for? Let's start by downloading the named app Dactyl from the link below:


Now install.

Wait a few seconds to finish the installation and just start the application.

At this point, swipp the application's initial info until you reach the settings screen where you need to tap the button OPEN SETTING PAGE.

Now, give Dactyl permission by clicking the accessibility menus and enable the app by confirming the confirmation popup.

At this point you can see the list of applications supported by Dactyl. But as the Stock Chamber already anticipated is not currently supported.

Now open the supported camera application, I've used OpenCamera, and you'll notice one notification toast who informs you that Dactyl is running. Now you can take the pictures you want by using the fingerprint sensor.

Dactyl can also be used in other Xiaomi terminals, such as the Redmi Note 3, and also used with applications such as Whatsapp, Messenger, Retrica, Instagram etc ..

I hope I have solved a small problem to anyone who finds selfie with the fingerprint sensor like me.
