    So Google doesn't consider knock code a secure lock screen for Android pay? Anyone found a workaround?

    Nope. Dropped Android Pay due to this. Don't know why there couldn't be password when opening the app at the register, like the old wallet did. Once they change this, I may try it again.

    I think they dropped the password because that was specifically for the wallet function and with pay they don't want any extra codes getting in the way of credit card payment. That said a knock code should count and that's an oversight

    If you are like me and prefer the knock code for your lock screen, do not install or activate Android Pay. You can't use it and you can't get rid of the app.

    Looks like I'm going to be enjoying a reformat...

    I installed it and I like it. And with trusted devices, I just unlock with a swipe.

    With trusted devices, I unlock with just a swipe, even with Android Pay installed. I imagine that it would do the same for knock code.

    Nope and best of all, I can't uninstall it. I downloaded the official apk and it is acting like a system app now. Great...

    So you side loaded an app, it's not working how you want, so that justifies a post telling everyone to avoid the app like the plague?

    If it can't be uninstalled, I appreciate knowing about that, personally. I tend to assume that software I install is something I can remove if I don't like it.

    If that's not the case here (I haven't done any reading on Android Pay yet), then that's useful info, IMO. Especially if that meant I could never use a feature of the phone (Knock Codes) again, for discussion.

    The app was side loaded along with a side loaded update to Google play services, according to the instructions on XDA.

    When you side load, you inherit certain risks.

    I guess this is a risk taken whenever an app is sideloaded. You never know the authenticity of the application.

    Has anyone verified that the app installed from XDA is digitally the same as if downloaded from the Google Play Store?

    No, I was simply stating that you shouldn't use it if you are a fan of the knock code

    Well thanks for this. I was thinking about Android pay but I use knock code so I'll pass on it now with this information.

    So I disabled it and tried force stop. Removed payment info and I still can't get my knock code back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try going to setting - security - certificate Mangement - clear credential. all the disabled options (including Knock Code) should be enabled again

    I just updated to Android Pay this morning. I went with the pattern. It is just as fast to unlock my screen with that as it is knock code, if not faster. Not a big deal at all. I'm sure they will update the app after they get some feed back and give you the option to use a password at the app instead of having it this way.

    If you go into Settings, App manager, All apps, scroll down to Android Pay, open and Disable. Will revert to factory default Google Wallet.

    With Google wallet Google was in the middle of your purchase transaction. You tap to pay, Goggle processed your credit card. With Android Pay your Financial institution or Bank is the one you are interfacing with. Financial institutions want a pin or something that secures the transaction as being legitimately made by you..you know like you use a pin at an ATM.

    So I don't think it is Google that won't approve tap to unlock. Financial institutions don't want to have that as verification of a secure transaction.
    So with Android pay you will eventually get more market saturation and opportunities to use it, but in a way that financial institutions will accept as secure.
