Default Disable Lock Screen

OK, I was playing around and set up the lock screen on my TP. While this could potentially be a nice feature, I decided it was more cumbersome than helpful.

Despite going through the security menu and seeing the settings for disabling the lock screen, which are grayed out, I simply can't find a way to disable it.

Am I just missing something?

Can you change screen lock to none? The top option?

It's greyed out for some reason.

What build are you using and was it greyed out on previous builds? Running any ROM's that may cause that?

CM9 tenderloin nightly 03262012. Other than that, nothing else I can think of that would affect it.

Any other suggestions? I'm all ears...

Thanks!

As I look at this with a little more clarity, I think I may have some information that could give some direction on how I might be able to sort this out:

In the area next to "None" in the Settings Lock Screen menu, it says, "Disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage."

I am running the following applications that I suspect may be the culprit:

System Tuner
Super user

I have gone through both looking for a setting or other information that might reveal what has disabled this setting, but nothing jumps out at me.

Again, any suggestions?

I did restore from a backup made prior to invoking this setting, along with wiping the Dalvik cache. No joy. I am wondering if I should do a complete restore to factory defaults and then restore my backup.

I'm at work right now so I can't look at my TP, but check settings > Location and Security > Device Administration > Select device administrators.

See if a program has admin rights and if so uncheck it.

I'm looking at this in my GB phone so it may be a little different in CM9.

I looked at that previously and it is greyed out and shows no device administrators. When I saw this I attempted to add one but it wouldn't allow me to.

I would add that I am a net admin with a working knowledge of permissions and rights relative to a Windows environment, so this is not unfamiliar territory for me. I'm just not familiar with Android....

Thanks!

Figured it out.

I went into "Profiles" and looked at the settings. In the profile settings at the bottom is an entry for "System settings -Lock screen mode". You can choose several settings, one of which is disable.

Once I applied it, no more lock screen!

Again, thank to those who made suggestions!

Everything is in settings. Look for security and lock screen. (sorry, from memory).

Hi Dan,

I'm stuck with exactly the same problem. Where is this "Profiles" that you've used to solve it? I've looked for it on my phone but I can't find it.

Thx

I had this exact problem, which turned out to be the result of a VPN profile I had set up (though I was never actively using it). Deleting all VPN profiles made all the screen lock choices visible again.

A lot of business email wifi accounts will do this, too. Anything that has an encryption certificate that permanently resides in your phone will cause the problem.

You can delete the VPN accounts or email accounts, but that only works if you don't need the VPN or email account. If you need those things, you have to fix it some other way.

If you are rooted, I found this tutorial to bypass it:
[TUT][ICS] bypass Credential Storage phone lock / install certificates SamaaNetwork

Also, you can download the app "Secure Settings" which has a function to disable the lock screen. I use mine in conjunction with Tasker, but you can use it as a stand-alone app with a widget:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intangibleobject.securesettings.plu gin

Keep in mind if you're doing this on a business phone, you may be putting your company's data at risk. Since you're bypassing a company policy/procedure, it's your responsibility.

Thank you so much. Yesterday I wanted to remove the pattern lock to swipe on my Galaxy S2. But the first three options (none,swipe & facelock) were greyed. (saying its disabled by device administrator.) Never happend that before.

Luckily i found your post. Deleted the vpn profiles I'd created a few days ago. And voila!... All the options are available now.

Thank you so much.

I had this all buggered up with a m.google.com exchange set up with the the sammy email app checking my google apps email account. Fortunately, I am the google apps admin for my company so I could change the settings in google apps.

But, then after much trouble playing with screenlock setting, I discovered that I must decrypt the SD card to release the credentials...
So, if all else fails check the SD card and see if its encrypted. Worked for me.

I've said this before and I'll say it again, make a freakin' backup and when things go wrong, just restore the backup and all is well again.

It should be a no brainer.

If your Screen Lock option under Screen Security has greyd OUT " NONE , SLIDE & Face Unlock option then simply go to --- > Settings ---> go to Security --> scroll down to the last option Clear Credentials Press OK and you will have all the options back in screen lock.

Default HTC One X

I tried installing a CA cert to receive my company emails and this greyed out the "Screen lock: None" option with the message "disabled by administrator encryption policy..."on my HTC One X. Here is what I tried.

1) I immediately removed the certificates I had just installed, the issue was not resolved.
2) Thought a reboot of the phone would help but even that didn't work.
3) Under Settings => Security => Credential Storage, there is a button to "Clear Credentials". I clicked on that praying that none of the System credentials would be wiped out. It is a new phone, so I didn't mind resetting to factory settings anyway. Looks like the System credentials are still there and my problem has been resolved. I hope this helps someone out there.

recently they changed to microsoft exchange at work, and when I tried to add my new work email account on my CM9-touchpad, it asked me if it was ok to modify the security settings, as in password unlock, and encryption. I declined, and added the email account as a generic account (no calendar/phonebook integration, etc). Small price to pay for freedom... yours may be a similar issue...

I just managed to resolve this on my S3 after looking for a solution in other forums:

This was the problem:
- Inserted a new SD card
- Formated the card
- Now I could not get any other unlock method to activate... not even after clearing the admin controls and credentials

And these are the steps I took to resolve it (In "Settings -> Security"):
- Encrypted the SD card (everything)
- Decrypted the SD card (again, everything)
- Made sure phone is decrypted again
- Done! unlock options became available again

Model: GT-I9300
OS: Android 4.1.2

Hope this helps!

I've never seen anything good come from encrypting.... People always complaining about things broken when they do. Glad it worked for you.

It did! finally..., spend hours to fix this. The thought that inserting an SD card might block all this never crossed my mind. Simply encrypted/decrypted and all is well again.

Do you have a nandroid backup that you made before you activated the lock screen? Restore it, all fixed!

How did you get this to work with Secure Settings? I've been trying to set up a task with to disable pattern lock when connected to a particular wifi, i.e. when I'm at home.

Even at Secure Settings "Guides" (Guides - Secure Settings), it says the following...
"Go to the Settings app
Set the lock type to "None""

All of my options are greyed out. I have cleared all credentials. I've enabled and disabled apps that were device administrators.

After clearing credentials, do I need to reboot or something?
I do use Widget Locker as my keyguard, but I do not have a password on there. It's just a swipe to unlock. If the phone is locked, I have to swipe, then password, to unlock.

Encryption/decryption sounds kind of scary. Not sure I want to go there.

I'm on a GS3 running CM 10.1.3, Android 4.2.2.

Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
I've just got into tasker and I thought I had it figured it out, or at least understood. This has me baffled.

GS3 is a TouchWiz device.

You shouldn't be asking advice in a HP Touchpad CM forum.

Also note, if you have a work exchange email account, your work security settings may disable disabling some security items.

I just re-read your post and realize you're asking about tasker, which I know nothing about, so won't be much help.

Default Screen Lock Grief

Trying to get my device back after Vodafone Mobile@Work has messed up my security settings.

problem: Screen Lock is stuck on pin with high security - have to use android qwerty keyboard to unlock - aargh. Also have encryption on sd card

attempted fixes:
removed sd card
No VPN setup
No exchange setup
Cleared all credentials
Cleared all device administrators
installed "secure settings" and that remains as device administrator. reports that the device lock is disabled - however it remains enabled.

..and unfortunately still no joy. Will resetting to factory defaults actually fix this? anything less drastic?

Not sure I can help, but every now and then my phone gets stuck between settings. I use tasker to enable and disable the lock based upon different scenarios. The lock will be on, but because of the scenario I'm in, there is no actual password. When that happens, I hit my back button and the keypad goes away and I get the factory slider to unlock to the right.

Any chance you've got that?

Do you have a backup you made before you got into this mess? If you do, go to recovery, do a factory data reset. Once you're done that restore that back up you made.

Go to settings... security... device administrators and remove anything that looks like your work. Then you should be able to change your lock and unencrypt your device.
