    I have an S7, and recently most of the time when I turn on my phone via home button or power button it goes directly to the screen where I would enter my password. Like it doesn't even show my lock screen it just goes to the password. I'm worried it could be malware.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but then, I'm not a Samsung user. Anyway, does this also happen in Safe Mode?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does it look like the normal password entry screen from Samsung?

    The password screen is the lock screen, so your question is confusing. Please register and reply with more info to clarify what the problem is.

    I think the OP is referring to the initial screen that shows up with the clock and any notifications. Probably the AOD screen on Samsung phones.

    I'm surprised you haven't tried or even referred to my Safe Mode suggestion, considering that as you say you are worried about malware. It takes about thirty seconds. There's no need to fear Safe Mode. Bad things won't happen. It's one of the most useful diagnostic features of Android phones.

    Coming back to AOD -- is yours turned off? If so, see what happens if you turn it back on: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=SetPWJGB
