    Hey all,

    While playing a bit with "Security" Settings, I enabled the screen lock with a PIN. I wish now to UNDO this, but it seems (to my eyes at least) that this is not possible. :confused:
    Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Efthy

    I was in the same situation after I set up a Vpn connection. Try the instructions from tonykm(last post) in this thread
    How to Remove Lockscreen PIN

    Worked for me

    Thanks for the reply. In fact, my screen was PIN-locked after I played with VPN connection too...

    The instructions given by tonykm are not applicable, as there are NO Device administrator displayed in my device. However, the solution was easier that I thought:
    Screen Security> Screen Lock> NONE (which will eliminate all kinds of screen locks)
    And then, I re-set the "Swipe" lock was initially there as desired.

    Thanks!

    Makes sense, as I have Avast! set as administrator.

    Glad you got it sorted
