    Exclamation How to change or remove the icon which says NickName in the lock Screen of Micromax Bolt A089

    When I initially open the locked Screen I get a screen with the Wallpaper, and at the bottom there is Digital Clock on the right and there is a ICON and text which reads " NickName".
    I am able to change the wallpaper from settings/Display/Wallpaper/lock screen Wallpaper..and also there is option to put a name in the wallpaper thru Settings/Security/Owner Info, But sadly I am not able to customize the The ICON which reads "Nickname" at the bottom let of the Locked screen.
    How do I change or remove it.

    I'm not too familiar with this device, but might this be another account? Maybe you have a different user set up named 'Nickname' and you have that 'quick access' in the lockscreen? Also, try looking for "Lockscreen Shortcuts" in the Lockscreen settings.

    Hi all,

    The above mentioned steps do not work when the micromax A089 is set to use pattern lock. So how do i change the nickname and nickname photo as well in this case ?

    Hi! Thank you so much for this info! It sure did help me solve same issue as that of kgcoolguy. My device tho is diff from his. Mine is vivo v3 which i just bought yesterday . I was wondering also how to edit that lock screen wallpaper with "nickname" @ the bottom leftmost. I tried pressing it for 3 seconds, swiping it sideways and up hoping it would pop up an edit menu or something but nada. I guess I based my assumption on the UI of iphone, blackberry and note series device of samsung. Unfortunately this new vivo device is not as user friendly and using a mix of obsolete menu settings & UI and just tried hard to marry it to a new UI and 3gb ram. Outcome is not impressive esp for blackberry iphone and note users like me. LG X Screen has a nicer UI and marshmallow OS but my bone of contention is its hybrid dual sim, does not support otg and can't transfer apps to sd. So in as much as i love its rose gold color and how light weight it is, at the end of the day its still value for money even if its a cheaper phone. Anyway sorry for my unsolicited sharing. I thought might give some insights to others who are in the same page as me or contemplating of getting a non expensive interim smartphone that will do the job while awaiting for Note 7.

    Thanks again!
