    Hi All,

    I have Oukitel-K3 with Android 7.0

    Even I set a PIN or PATTERN for the locked screen, the swipe

    How to remove 'swipe' on the pin-locked screen -> not simple... I know how to do this for Galaxy (Settings -> .... -> Derectly show pattern view), but this option is missed in Oukitel K3.

    So, how to solve?

    Thank you!

    Welcome to Android Central! It might not be possible. Not all devices give you the option to disable that swipe screen. The rationale may be to prevent unintended attempts to unlock your phone (like when the phone is in your pocket, or in a bag). If the phone accidentally wakes up and the screen goes directly to the PIN/pattern entry lockscreen, it might start registering false unlock attempts, and if these attempts fail enough times, it could potentially lock you out of your phone (or worse yet, force a factory data reset). The swipe screen prevents this from happening.
