    Is there a way to add Lock Screen Widgets on to the Moto G (2015)? I searched it up online and it said to enable it at Settings > Security > Enable Widgets. However when I go to the security tab I can't find the Enable Widgets option. If anyone knows how to add Lock Screen Widgets please let me know.

    Nope, not since KitKat... Lockscreen widgets were done away with in Lollipop and it continues in Marshmallow.

    On some aftermarket ROMs you can get weather and a few other things, but no general widgets anymore, it was considered a security risk since they could often be used to compromise the device's security.
