I tried what you're saying a few times, and after you close the camera, you're back on the lock screen. Unless you were actually looking at the phone, it recognized your face and it unlocked itself milliseconds before opening the camera. You can notice that the "symbol" in the middle goes from that of a person to that of an unlocked lock when it recognizes ...

Just as Kushtrim mentioned, I also suspect that it's due to "Trusted face": maybe it's too sensitive, or the face you provided is.. still too general that everyone's face is detected as yours. Some suggestions that I could think of: Turn off "Trusted face". It's an obvious solution, but you cannot enjoy this new feature. Improve the "Trusted face" ...

You can simply erase you security credentials in security and this will automatically allow you to remove the lock screen on 5.0

No, you're not missing a setting. This particular decision seems very unfortunate, and a ticket opened with google to resolve this has already some support : Google code ticket. We can only hope that this will be reverted to the previous behaviour (allowed only when the lockscreen had no pin/password/gesture) or made into a setting.

Since I just upgrade to 5.0/Lollipop, I can't confirm for sure if this setting is present in KitKat/4.4, but in 5.0, you can hide the last digit in the PIN unlock screen by turning off the Security setting labeled Make passwords visible, as seen here: This is found under the general Settings app under the Security section. Note, however, that this also ...

Ok, just posting an answer in case someone with the same problem finds this. I took a change and hit "clear credentials." Afterwards I was able to select NONE for screen-lock again. So far haven't noticed and side-effects to clearing credentials.

There are a decent number of 3rd party weather apps that have an option to add the current weather conditions to your notification bar. Consequently, enabling one of these persistent weather notifications will add the entry to your lock screen as well. I personally use 1Weather, which looks like this: This is (in my experience) a pretty common feature ...

This works at my device: Settings -> Security -> Deactivate Administrators. Deactivate anything listed. Settings -> Security -> Clear credentials.

Check if your credentials in security, if you have an application that requires you to have a password and delete that. Did you encrypt the phone ? That requires a password. Also if you are a guest you cant, but i think you already are an administrator of your own device.

I assume that you are seeing the "Block" and "Priority" options from the screenshot, but not the "Sensitive" one. In this case, I have been able to replicate your situation. In the Sound & notification settings page, there is an option called "When device is locked". If this is set to "Show all notification content" then the "sensitive" option is ...

I recently wiped my phone to factory after I had rooted the phone and got rid of the bloatware I did not want. (Forgot the passcode) I thought I would have to root my phone again and then get rid of factory installed bloatware....again. I was pleasantly surprised to find both that the root was intact AND the bloatware was still gone. Also, my superuser app ...
