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" ...

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

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

I figured it out. Swiping to the right opens the phone, swiping to the left, the camera and swiping up unlocks to the home screen.

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.

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 ...

Sounds like an ART incompatibility. You probably installed an app recently that doesn't work properly with ART. Presumably it added itself to the start-up apps. That's why your UI crashes when booting up. You will have to find a way to either remove the app in question or go back to the Dalvik runtime. I went through the same ordeal a month ago when I opted ...

That seems like it is a bug in the custom ROM you are using. Many custom ROMs (or Xposed modules) that add a rotate lock screen function may have that bug. If it is disabled, and the bug occurs, there only ways to reverse it are to either restart com.android.systemui or to enable auto-rotation of the lock screen and then turn the phone into landscape mode, ...

It's telling you that you will have to unlock the device before you can access a widget tap's action. Eg: If I tap on the clock widget on my lock screen, I will have to unlock the phone before it opens the clock screen. If I tap on a Google Now widget on my lock screen, I will have to unlock the phone before it opens Google Search/Now. The dimming is ...

Yes, they have removed this toggle in the quick settings menu. Custom ROMs may be able to restore the toggle.

If you have lock screen options grayed out, that's usually enforced by some program that has been granted permission to act as a "device administrator". Most commonly, it's the stock Mail app if you are connecting to a corporate mail server, or some corporate security software you may have been asked to install if you're connecting to a company network. Go ...

all right, i got exact same issue as you described. i was listening the TunelIn Radio then i got the cover of the radio show on the screen lock background. i did the following to get rid of the cover photo: open any app (not build in by Google) on your device, lock the screen before the app is full running, then unlock , the lock screen background should ...

Last but not least, the Lollipop lock screen shows full-screen still images from multimedia content being played from the device -- so you might see a graphic from a TV show or cover art from an album, depending on what you're streaming. In my experience, however, the images don't seem to clear properly when the content is no longer being ...

For the One Plus One Phone running Android Version 4.4.4 with CyanogenMod version 11.0-XNPH44S, go to Settings -> Lock Screen -> Slider Shortcuts. You will just see the icon of the lock and after you touch it, you will see your current options. To change or remove one of these, move the lock to the target icon and you will then see options to modify it.

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 ...

You also have to swipe before you can enter the password... which is also a bit annoying, but I got used to it and you can start swiping from the bottom to the right with your thumb in a bow shape, which is a bit more ergonomic I think. So I thing you just have to get used to it, or maybe a laucher can change this. Best regards Josef
