Need Help With Samsung Galaxy S6 edge

I just got my samsung galaxy S6 edge and I am having problems with the fingerprint scanner. I set all my fingerprints up and I have the setting for when to unlock the phone I use my fingerprint, but everytime I go to unlock the phone it wants me to swipe it instead of using fingerprint.

 

The only time it has let me use the fingerprint is when I restart the phone or if I turn it off and back on after that first time it goes back to the swipe way.

 

I really wanna use the fingerprint to unlock my phone please help me.

goto settings then lock screen and security then secure lock settings then secured lock time and select instantly.

 

the default is 10 min.

Thank you so much for you help! They dont explain about that in a lot of the video's I watched on youtube, or unless I didn't pay close attention. You just saved me a lot of time trying to figure it out, I got so frustrated too. Thank you again!
