    Default How to enable pattern lock again, all options except "password" are grayed out?

    Hello, I recently added an exchange account which I then removed. Now my only lock screen security option is "password". I'd like to use pattern lock again.

    I don't have any device administrators nor any exchange accounts anymore.

    Is there any way to restore the settings to what they once were?

    Welcome to the forums.
    Have you tried a reboot? Perhaps that will help.

    Thanks,

    A reboot didn't work. It still looks like this: imgur: the simple image sharer

    I have looked at Administrators, there is nothing there. Is there some other accounts or settings that can affect this?
