    I have a LG G3 fully updated to latest version, and I gave the screen lock a try. HATE it.

    Went to remove screen lock. Settings > Lock Screen > No thing here to remove. My options are...
    Secure with a pattern
    Patern effect
    Hidden pattern
    Make pattern visible
    etc...


    Searched on line and the top option should be disable, along with tap options and a face recognition... but I do not see anything like that.

    What's up?

    Welcome to Android Central! Maybe there's some security app that is acting as a Device Administrator, preventing you from doing that. Go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and see what's there. Try unchecking anything that isn't Android Device Manager.

    Also, you didn't encrypt your phone, right?

    First off thanks B. Diddy for your guidance and help.

    First thing I did is make sure my phone is not encrypted and it isn't. I checked out under security and while I didnt find a Device Administrator but phone administrator I see two things Android device manager which was checked and I removed the check box and support & protection (which looks like a Verizon thing) was not checked. I rebooted the phone to ensure the changes took effect and the phone still requires a password to log in.

    any other thoughts?

    In your original post, what happens if you tap the "Secure with pattern" choice? The other things you list are all associated with pattern lock, so it makes me wonder if tapping that first choice might actually give you the option to select a different lock method, or select none.

    I have the G3. I set a pattern lock on my phone. When I go into my lockdown setting, my phone says pattern under Screen Lock. I then select Screen Lock, verify my pattern, then I get a selection of options, at the top says None.

    Thank you both...

    Keep it real, you nailed it. I feel like an *****. I hope to pass some tips on to the next android user as repayment.
