    Default Galaxy Note 3 FoxFi screen lock can't be turned off?

    I installed FoxFi and later found out it isn't what I thought it was. It installed a lock screen with the app. I have uninstalled the app, cleared all credentials, tried the enter bad password routine repeatedly and still can't get rid of the annoying screen lock. Any ideas?

    After you set up lock screen for foxfi turn screen off then back on. Keep doing the wrong code or pattern until it says can retry In 30 seconds. Hit 'forgot password' enter your Gmail and password and it will open up security. Change lock screen back to swipe and you are all set.

    You also have have to remove FoxFi from your trusted credentials even after uninstalling in order to fully regain your lockscreen. Settings>Security>Trusted Credentials.... under the User Tab click select FoxFi Inc scroll down select Remove

    It took me several tries to get rid of it.

    How do I get passed this. Where do I get the password for credentials storage?

    Just make a password. You won't need it. Then it will say you need to make a pattern lock. Then just follow instructions from the second post on this subject.

    I just got my Note today, and I can't make this trick work. When I get the "please wait 30 seconds" message I never get a "forgot password" link. I entered my pin incorrectly 30 times and still didn't get that option. Any ideas?

    FYI in case anyone else has this issue, I got it to work after selecting Pattern instead of Passcode lock. Entered the wrong pattern 5 times then hit the "forgot pattern" button. Entered Google info and it took me to a screen to select between Pass code, Pattern or Password locks with the others greyed out. I just hit the back button out to the home screen. Now FoxFi works And I have a regular swipe unlock screen. Good luck!
