    Is there a way to be able to respond to notifications (texts and emails) from the lock screen? I see the notifications and the option to delete or reply, but if I but reply, it makes me unlock the phone. Pretty sure I could reply without unlocking on my S7.

    Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    Do you have any pin or password enabled on the phone?

    You must unlock to reply/respond. You have the option to see the text or email on the lock screen but to reply you have to unlock

    I wouldn't want that feature. Someone can pick up your phone and send an obscene reply as a prank or out of spite.

    Actually figured it out with the use of the Textra app. Textra wakes lock screen and i can reply without unlocking phone. All good now.

    don't worry. this feature cannot be enabled unless you setup trusted face (or something equivalent).
