Hi @tuya, Fingerprint can be used to unlock the wallet, but to get the Secret Recovery Phrase Password is needed.

Hello and welcome to the MetaMask community,

I do not know how you can get the Secret Recovery Phrase in this case, but to be on the safe side, now that you can unlock your wallet, I suggest you to move your funds to another wallet whose Secret Recovery Phrase has been backed up. In the meantime, the topic is open and other experts may have a solution for this issue.

Hello @wbmaster !

The wallet password is unique on each device, you set it yourself. To restore access on a new device, only the seed phrase is needed.
