    Default Verizon S3: Can't turn off lock screen with 4.3?

    I used to be able to turn off the requirement for a pin number, but now every time I turn off my phone for even a minute I have to re-enter my pin number.
    Can I get around that?

    Never mind - figured it out - under security and encrypt device. I can change the requirement for using a pin when I go out easily. At home it's a pain leaving the lock on.

    There are lots of similar apps, but I started with this and have been pretty happy - keeps the phone unlocked when you're at home connected to your Wi-Fi, but reverts to your normal lock selection when you go out. There are also plug-ins for Bluetooth, etc.

    My understanding is that these programs won't work on phones using security restrictions from corporate exchange servers however. Just something to keep in mind. I'd love to find one that would work though.

    Ok, this should not be this difficult! i'm trying to turn off the PIN, and have no lock screen at all. Following the directions under "Encrypt Device", it still doesn't allow me to turn off the lock screen PIN. I'm certainly missing something, can anyone enlighten me? thanks.

    Go to "Security" "Encrypt Device" "Set Screen Lock" - down at the bottom is "none"

    I'm having the same issues. Even when I go into Security> Set Screen Lock, the "None" option is grayed out. I've removed all the apps I can think of that would have had anything to do with the screen lock and am still not able to take the screen lock to none. Anyone have any other ideas that I could try? I'd sure appreciate the help!

    I'm wondering if once the screen lock is set, it stays that way. Corporations would want that.

    Does this have to do with the "knox" security that was in the update? My wife and I both have lock screens now. As soon as we dl'd foxfi it requied a security certificate and said security certificate required vpn which required lock screen.

    FoxFi now requires a password to get around KNOX, if you want free tethering.

    That's what I thought. Is there no workaround to eliminate lock screen password?

    Not if you want free tethering.

    Go into security scroll down and clear credentials and then it'll let you turn it off!

    The "Clear Credentials" in my Samsung GS3 is not active. I can't turn off the lock screen. Thanks.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This was very helpful. I knew Foxfi was the cause, but I did not know how to undo it.
