I was using my iPhone last night and it was working fine. Ever since this morning, I haven't been able to unlock my phone with my finger. No big deal, usually there is a 5% chance that it doesnt work for me. I was about to re-scan my finger and that's when I noticed that all my prints are gone from the Touch ID & Passcode > Touch ID section. Has this happened to anyone else lately?

Running iOS 7.0.6

I had it happen once, weeks ago. They just magically disappeared and I have no idea why.

Happened to me this morning

I woke up this morning and TouchID would not work. Went into settings and found that function was turned off and fingerprints had been "forgotten." This is the first time it's happened to me since I bought the phone on release day.:confused:
