    Has anybody had a new speed charge lock screen start popping up in the last week or two? This just started and its rather annoying. It forces you to swipe it off the screen before you can thumbprint your security to unlock your phone. There's 3 dots at the top but the only option there is to dabble speed charging. I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to turn this off. Any ideas?

    I use a pin rather than the thumbprint but we have the same issue. Look for the thread on lockscreen. So far nobody has come up with a solution.

    Reading around AF this morning, seems a couple of other people have reported extra lock screens appearing on their Samsung phones. An S6 and other is a Note 5. One of them even has ads in it apparently.

    Has anyone had an update very recently? I'm thinking it could be something that Samsung has done. Possibly with the Cheetah Mobile Clean Master SDK, "Smart Manager" that Samsung puts on their phones. What can easily do about it, not sure, and assuming it's not just some app doing it, I don't use a Samsung phone myself.

    It showed up on my Moto X Pure last week and it's driving me nuts! All I can do is "turn off," but of course it comes back the next time I charge my phone. I hope someone finds a fix soon!

    I started getting a screen like this when I downloaded the Samsung cleaner app from the Samsung store.
    I deleted the app and the screen went away.

    I, too, have had this annoying problem and couldn't figure out why. I then saw the article below:

    http://www.thecountrycaller.com/432...ndroid-phone-with-ads-heres-how-to-remove-it/

    Check this out and do exactly what it says. When you go into settings, go to the application manager and then go to your running services. Check each one until you find one that is running the service "ChargeLockerService". That is the culprit.
    For me, it was included with the GO Keyboard. For you it may be different. The GO Keyboard has been changed. I had it some time back and it didn't include this. It definitely does, now.

    I hope this helps someone else. It drove me crazy, too. It appears they have deliberately made it difficult to find out where this app is coming from and which app it is associated with. This should help. It may take a little time to isolate it, but it is better than being hijacked into using something without your knowledge or permission.

    In case someone with a different phone stumbles across this thread in your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 forum:

    The latest Clean Master app from Cheetah Mobile was producing a blank lock screen when I was attempting to charge my UMI Hammer S phone. The reset button would not clear that screen until several attempts had been made (I think a swipe might have unlocked it). After a phone restart I found a small Charge Master ad appeared first time on my lock screen when I did a charge. Subsequently I was back to a blank lock screen.

    I uninstalled Clean Master and the entire problem went away
