    Hello all,

    Yesterday I updated to 4.3 and noticed that the widgets/shortcuts I had on my lock screen are gone.

    I currently have my lock screen unlock via PIN. I removed this to swipe, and noticed that I can now swipe to the left or right and the widgets show up.

    But obviously this way there is no security on unlocking the phone. I also checked my settings and I don't see the "Enable Shortcuts" option in Lock Screen options.

    Does anyone know a workaround for this?

    I'd be open to any suggestions for lock screen apps/widgets that don't use the stock lock screen as well.
