In an impressive move Apple is quietly adding a new feature to iOS they are calling SOS mode where you can press your home button 5 times to automatically disable the fingerprint reader requiring a pass code to unlock the phone. A simple and elegant solution for privacy!

(As a note. It is not legal for the authorities to demand your passwords or force you to unlock your devices. But it is completely legal for the to use your fingerprint to do the same.)
