I want my Android device screen to open without requiring password. So I chose "none" option in Security settings. But, when I needed to add a VPN connection, it required me to provide a password, PIN, or a pattern for the screen. Thus, the option to add "none" unlock is disabled once a VPN connection is set (figure below).
I want to know if there is a way I can override this security policy i.e. retain VPN connection but forego screen unlock password. The Android version is 4.2 and the tablet is rooted if it helps.
