As @bkdodger asked, who is your carrier, and what version 5.1?

S5 tap'n
it's T-mobile, I tried many root tools like iRooter, Kingo and other data, but not successed. I also tried AnyRooter to root my Android, it works fine but not free.

You have to disable all AV apps before rooting any device.
Also, I don't think Towelroot was updated to work on anything past KitKat on the S5. I think Kingroot works on Lollipop, but you'd want to double check that on the XDA forum as I haven't been following it lately.

just make sure to read the instructions carefully with each root method. Last I heard you still couldn't root if your S5 is on Marshmallow, at least this is the case with the Verizon model. However, this may have changed recently, so just be aware of that.
