    Got the Android™ Nougat OS update for my LG G5 today and now I have to swipe to unlock screen BEFORE entering PIN to unlock phone. Why? I can not get this turned off and it's very annoying. Any help appreciated.

    Moved from the Nougat forum to the G5 forum.

    Yeah-Big percentage of Android users going to reject these
    uncosulted New "N=Nougat" features that create extra
    steps just to open the phone: All this is done on the
    name of increase the so called security..but
    Not to quickly access the phone functions
    who agree on that: stay Tuned at AC

    One of the considerations was probably that if the screen goes straight to the PIN entry, there's an increased risk of accidental touches (e.g., if the screen is inadvertently turned on while in your pocket). Accidental touches can lead to incorrect PIN attempts, and depending on the phone, too many unlock attempts can potentially lock you out (or worse yet, wipe the phone). Requiring a swipe first reduces this risk.

    Is a fairly concern to address, but as you know it the vast majority of Android
    users don't care too much about >>Those risky security scenarious..But we'll
    see how "N" Nougat performs, when get downloaded in the Samsung
    phones, then we'll be able To do better reviews: SeeYa!

    On both my my Samsung and my Pixel, I only have to swipe first when I've powered the phone off and the on or if I've not touched one of the devices for a few days
