    I also had problems with the "swipe" option being greyed out. The work around I used was to go to settings, My Device, type in "credentials" in search field, clear credentials, then go back into Screen Lock, enter pin/password then you are able to select "swipe"

    Hope this helps.

    To Disable Lock screen, drove me crazy until someone advised: goto Settings, into More, Security, Clear credentials and walla, it now gives me an option under My Device, Lock Screen, where after putting in my lock "credentials", I had an option to "None", when before this was greyed-out.
    Thanks

    Hello,

    If you remember your Screen Lock PIN code and want to remove it, the method below worked for my device (Samsung S4 Mini, Android version 4.4.2)

    Enter
    'Settings'->'My Device'->'Lock Screen'

    Then, in the 'Screen Security' tab, you will read 'Screen Lock: Secured with PIN', hit it, and you will be prompted to 'Confirm PIN'
    Enter your Screen Lock PIN and hit 'Continue'

    A new window with the tab title 'Select Screen Lock' is opened now and in the list below this tab,
    'Swipe' is the first option to get rid of Screen Lock PIN requirement or you may choose whatever security caution enlisted you like,

    Best regards,
    q.

    Thanks to rohan1991 for the "Clear Credential" tip and especially, Akbar Ali5 for the more detailed procedure.
    To enable another temporary user of my mobile (Samsung Galaxy S4, Android 5.0.1 on Verizon), I also had to:

    unlock screen with Pattern|PIN|Password
    Settings (Personal) > Security (Credential storage) > Clear credentials
    Settings (Personal) > Lock screen (Screen security) > unlock screen again with Pattern|PIN|Password

    Then all choices were re-enabled in Settings (Personal) > Lock screen (Screen security) > Swipe|Pattern|PIN|Password|None

    Goto Settings >Security and Select Clear Credentials and then your option will be available.
    Good Luck!

    I put a password on the screen lock but now want to revert to swipe


    is it possible to remove the password without resetting to factory data?
    Had to go to settings, more, security, remove credentials and then I was able to change my lock screen setting back to swipe.

    Going to Lock Screen/Screen lock and setting it to none would work just as well - with a lot fewer stops along the way.

    No I'm having the same problem, I added a password just a while ago and it won't let me turn it off. It won't let allow me to click the swipe or no password.
