    Default Security Update

    Since the security update I now have to apply a password or pin number to get into the phone. Is there a way to disable this?

    Yes. As soon as you turn it on. The new security update would not let you ignore it either, you had to set up a password so now every time you turn it on you have put your password in.

    Did you check in the Security settings to see if you can go back to the default lock screen?

    SETTINGS > MY DEVICE ( at the top ) > LOCK SCREEN > SCREEN LOCK

    Remove your password/Pin from in here. Boom! Done!

    I have tried that but unfortunately that does not work. When you are in the screen lock section the only thing that is in white Pin and Password. Everything else is darkened out to where you can't use it. It has something to do with Microsoft Exchange Server because when I deleted my email it went away.
