Dashclock also lets you put various info on the lockscreen - temperature, battery charge, number of new emails, etc.

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

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" ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Another way you could achieve this is by downloading Espier Screen lock and the Espier Control Center. The installation is simple, and you can control even more without unlocking the screen. Modeled after Apple's iPhone lockscreen.

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.

Make sure your camera shortcut is on in the lockscreen. Open the camera from the lockscreen, drag your flash setting to the top from the camera settings and make sure it is on. Now all you have to do is open the camera shortcut and click video and your light will stay on. It will also record video while it's on but this is the only way to turn on your ...

You can do this in KitKat using the Xposed Framework with the AudioPrivacy module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.audio.privacy Unfortunately, this does not work in Lollipop, because Xposed does not work on Lollipop. I wish the CyanogenMod team would just add an option to disable this to the Lockscreen settings. Maybe I will bug them about it.

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

I am currently using an app in beta called Zwypelock. This app learns your unique behavior — the way you hold you phone, the pressure you apply to your touch screen, etc. It lets you unlock the phone with just a swipe.

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.

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.

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 ...

As it turns out, my phone had never fully decrypted. I went through the encryption process again then RE-decrypted it and I was able to switch back to swipe method.I am running a stock ROM so you can go back and forth from encrypted to decrypted.

I just had this problem too. The solution without having to download any outside apps is to go to "developer options" then uncheck "stay awake while charging" Not sure why they would have this as a default setting...

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 ...

I have solved this by decryption of memory card. Samsung Galaxy Phone: settings-->More-->security-->Encrypt External SD card-->disable. After disabling go to my device-->lock screen-->Screen lock--> all the features will be enabled. You will be able to choose your own security now. Regards, Hari

You need to check if you've installed any 3rd party Device Management Applications, like Kaspersky Device Security, KNOX, etc. I just solved my issue by deleting Kaspersky and all goes well. Try to see which applications manage your device such as "Tracking your device against thieves so you could erase it remotely".

I wonder if you say you have decrypted your phone because my phone (CyanogenMod 11) says explicitly that the only way to decrypt is a factory reset. http://imgur.com/iFXxsbC.png So in your case I would look if your phone is really decrypted.

Your wallpaper should be the same regardless of whether you're on the lockscreen or not — it's not an iPhone ;) Changing your wallpaper on 4.4 is easy, you just press and hold in any empty space on your screen after unlocking your phone. Choose "Wallpapers" and select your wallpaper. You can either choose one of the default ones, or select "Pick image" to ...
