    Default Don't see Enable Widgets in Security Settings

    I have a Galaxy Note 10 2014 and recently updated to Android 4.4.2. I have installed Dash Clock but in order to get it working the instructions say I have to Enable Widgets under Settings - Security. However when I go to Settings - Security I don't see the option to Enable Widgets. I verified Android version in About Device.

    It sounds like you're doing everything correctly, so not sure this will be much more help:
    Enable lock screen widgets in Android 4.4 KitKat - CNET

    I've also read from some people that their widgets wouldn't work with a pin or pattern lock, but I can't confirm that...good luck.

    Thanks. I did see that. The issue I am having is that the option Enable Widgets does not appear under Settings -> Security, so I can't enable that feature.

    I did forget to mention that I have Nova Launcher free installed, but not sure that would matter.

    Shouldn't make any difference, as I have nova as well as "enable widgets" in 4.4.3 on my N7. However, my wife's Dell Venue 8 running 4.3 doesn't have that option.

    The "enable widgets" option wasn't added until 4.4 so hers wouldn't.

    And running Nova shouldn't matter, unless you're going into Nova's settings menu and not the phones.

    I think I read somewhere that the newest version of TouchWiz doesn't allow for lock screen widgets. I could be wrong though.

    I contacted Samsung to no avail. They made it sound like Enable Widgets was not supported by my device. Either that or the person I got was clueless. If anyone else has a Samsung Note 10.1 2014 Edition running 4.4.2 and was able to get Dash Clock working, I'd love to know how you did it.
