    I'm not sure about the Pixel but in other devices running Android 10 you can change that message in settings - security & lock screen - tap the cog icon close to 'Screen lock' and select 'Lock screen message'. Worth a try.

    The OP mentioned that he doesn't get that option in his phone.

    Then I don't know because that option has been around since the original Pixel.

    I have all the latest Android 10. I don't want to reinstall the software. It's not the end of the world. I just have to live with it.

    It's strange that your phone tends to do these odd things without it being modified in any way. I wish I could have it in my hands to troubleshoot.

    I know. It's very frustrating for me but in the past I have been very lucky to have this newsgroup, especially you, to help me resolve my problems which was, in most cases, was user error. Early on, when I bought the phone, I had strange, annoying but not critical, problems, that indicated that a reinstall MIGHT resolve. I opted not to reinstall. I've worked with this and can live with it until if and when I get a new phone. Thanks again.

    Why don't you post screen shots of as you go through the steps. I don't see how your phone could be the only one with out this option.

    Can you also try booting into Safe Mode? https://support.google.com/pixelphon.../2852139?hl=en

    My safe mode instructions do not work. What am I doing wrong? Also when you want to attach a screenshot when you are responding to a post, hit the paper clip and go to either ALBUM or Files IMAGES and click on the file to be attached..I don't have the paper clip showing.

    Which way are you trying to activate Safe Mode? While the phone is on, press the Power button to bring up the onscreen power options. Then long-press the Power Off option until you see the message about Safe Mode appear.

    What about this? Open the settings, tap the magnifying glass top right, type 'Lock screen' and see which options you get.

    But did you get the 'Lock screen message' option with that search? If so, tap it and change the message.

    The options my phone when I press the POWER OFF button is Power Off, Restart, Screen Shot and Emergency. No other options. If I long press the key, nothing happens.

    Right, so when you see those options on the screen, long-press the Power Off option (on the screen). Do you see a window that appears asking if you want to reboot into Safe Mode?

    After you get those options you need to long press the 'Power off' message not the key.


    PS. Oooops. Posted at the same time.

    I apologize. I confused the Power button with the Power Off. I checked it in the safe mode and it made no difference.

    Not withstanding all of problems with the lock screen, here is a post that reflects what's missing on my pixel.

    How do i set a lock screen message?
    To enter or edit a lock screen message, you just have to follow a few simple steps:
    Access the settings screen on your device.
    Tap on Lock screen & security.
    Select Lock screen preferences.
    Tap on Lock screen message.
    Enter the message you want to be shown on your lock screen.
    Save the changes to set the message.
