I have Kaspersky Mobile installed. Today I had to reinstall it after installing a new rom. Now whenever I turn on the phone, I have to enter the kaspersky unlock code, which is different from the sim card lock code. Before I had the lockcode disabled, and I could use the phone without having to enther any code. I would like to disable the lock code, but can't find the option in the Kaspersky app. I've searched in the system settings, but no luck.

Can you tell me where I can set this option?

Phone info: Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100, Android JB 4.2.2, Avatarrom

    Are you sure it's even Kaspersky doing that? Lock settings are usually done by Android itself. Have you checked in Settings there? – Izzy Aug 4 '13 at 19:10
  • @t0mm13b, I updated the question. – SPRBRN Aug 4 '13 at 19:17
  • @Izzy, I have to enter the kaspersky code, not the simlock code. So that's enough proof that it's the Kaspersky app. – SPRBRN Aug 4 '13 at 19:17

    Hmmm... Try wiping the data/cache from recovery - do a backup before hand in case! – t0mm13b Aug 4 '13 at 19:19

I think I got it. This is what I did:

  • System settings > Security > Device managers
  • Disable Kaspersky as device manager
  • System settings > Screen lock: swipe (or what you want)
  • Enable Kaspersky as device manager

Now I can unlock the phone with one swipe. I use App Protector to lock certain apps plus system settings with a different code.

NB: the above names (like device manager) may not be 100% accurate as I'm not using an English version of Android...

Go to Settings > Screen lock> None
