    I want to use "Slide" as my screen lock in security, but the item is disabled and it do not allow me to select. Something like "disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage".

    How can I enable it?

    PS: None, Slide, FaceUnlock, Pattern are disabled as well, only PIN and password allow me to choose.

    If you're connected to an email/calendar/contacts service (Exchange ActiveSync, etc) for your work, they might disable this. Mine does...it enforces a PIN or password for enhanced security.

  3. Bingo. Ah, the torture of being employed.

    Any Activesync gurus on here know how to disable password requirements for certain users?
