10III: how to disable fingerprint service?

Found a service named “/vendor/bin/hw/android.hardware.biometrics.fingerprint@2.1-service.sony” cpu-guzzling today.
Due to my preferred device case the fingerprint sensor is useless for me anyway. Does anyone know how to disable it safely?

It “should” be as simple as running the following in the terminal

devel-su systemctl disable sailfish-fpd && systemctl stop sailfish-fpd

Mind that I haven’t tested this explicitly

Hm. Thanks for your answer, but this seems to be something different or a different layer of the same thing. I wanted to stop the related firmware. (I guess that’s what I see in “/vendor/bin/hw/”)

That stuff is running even when the sailfish service is disabled. - Well, I don’t want to brick my phone, so I’m fine with it as long as it’s not repeatedly running amok.
