    Default Remove lock screen camera icon?

    I've just updated my G3 to the latest software and now have an icon on the lock screen for easy access to the camera (without unlocking first).

    Is there any way to turn this off? I would rather it wasn't there.

    I don't have a 'Shortcuts' option under 'Lock Screen' in my settings. Should it be there on the G3?

    Oh, the shortcut option only appears when I have no security or swipe enabled.

    I have knock code as security and this camera icon appears in the bottom right corner of the knock code entry screen (if you tap on first).

    Very strange as I haven't even seen it mentioned anywhere before.

    Does everyone have the camera icon on the knock screen if knock code is their security?

    I just updated as well, and I use the security pattern...Shortcuts is greyed out for me, but I tried switching to the swipe unlock and it was accessible. I disabled the camera option and switched back to pattern and the camera icon is still there....surely there is a way to turn this off?

    It is a neat feature but barely works I swipe a
    Swipe and swipe and maybe like the forth time it will open the camera.
