    I'm not sure where this lock screen came from. I unlock my phone and I find this bubble lock screen that I have never seen before. It only requires a swipe and then it brings me to my system lock screen. Could it be an app I installed? My phone is running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

    Hello there!

    Care to mention what model your phone is?

    Every Android has different looks and feels depending on device. It would also help if you can supply a picture of your lockscreen.

    That may be a stock lockscreen effect.

    As far as I know, the UX on the Note 4 post-MM stemmed from the Note 5 when it had Lollipop. So it did inherit many elements.

    Hmmm, that lockscreen seems normal for a Note 4.

    I'm not sure if there exists an option to change it, because I remember you could on KitKat.

    I found out what's going on with my phone. Apparently, two lock screen were activated at once, even if the box in settings that says "Fingerprint" is checked. Now, I just need to fix it. Sometimes, once I swipe the first lockscreen (which I want to get rid off), it just goes to my home screen, leaving my phone completely vulnerable to my mischievous classmates. Please help.

    Have you installed any third party apps which could put a separate lockscreen without warning?

    No, none that I'm aware of.

    When I added a trusted device that can unlock my phone if it's near the device, then the bubbles show up and all I have to do is swype once to unlock the phone. The trusted devices I added were a Fitbit blaze and my iHome clock.

    To add a trusted device go to your settings security smart lock trusted devices
