Claim of US Patent No. 9,762,575

1. A method for operating a first electronic device, the method comprising:
receiving a request for information stored in a security region from a second electronic device;
displaying a fingerprint authentication region to input first fingerprint data in response to detecting at least one of set
pressure and an input of set electromagnetism, wherein the fingerprint authentication region corresponds to at least a portion
of a display of the first electronic device;

detecting the first fingerprint data based on the fingerprint authentication region;
determining whether the first fingerprint data corresponds to a second fingerprint data stored in the first electronic device;
in response to determining the first fingerprint data corresponds to the second fingerprint data, obtaining an access right
of the security region;

obtaining the information in the security region based on the obtained access right; and
transmitting the obtained information to the second electronic device connected via near field communication.
