How STOP the annoying keypad popup that bypasses fingerprint security when I "wakeup" phone?

How do I disable the incredibly annoying (especially for disabled people) periodic keypad security popup when 'wakeup’ Samsung Galaxy S7 phone? I want to use fingerprint 100% (android 8.1)

Is my only other option is to disable security entirely? It would be stupid to do that.

This thing pops-up anywhere from every 4th to maybe 10th time I press the button to “wakeup” the phone. It is annoying and frustrating.

I want to be able to just keep my finger on the button and use the fingerprint scan 100% of the time. 

It is sometimes difficult to input the multi-digit passcode on the keypad and I do not see ANY security advantage in inserting this popup keypad randomly into the process.
