    So I saw this on the Lenovo forums and figured I would ask you all here. Has anyone noticed this flaw?

    Just tried it. If the phone is locked and you do this, the swiping up just reveals whatever other unlock method is set up (pattern unlock in my case). If the phone is in a trusted area or connected to a trusted device, swiping up at that point does open the phone without unlock, but that would always be the case. I'm not seeing an issue, but perhaps there's a specific set of circumstances that are the problem? But not being able to replicate the issue, I remain skeptical that this is an issue. I might try setting up a PIN lock instead of the pattern to see if I can replicate. (This is also on my Z Force, not Z Play, so there's a chance that's part of the issue.)

    Well that's good to know for the most part. My Z Play will be here in a couple days so i definitely will be trying this. Hopefully it's not an issue and it's just because his was in a trusted zone type of deal.

    Okay so then his must be in the trusted Zone without realizing it. Makes me feel better that it's not an issue then. I appreciate it.

    That's the video he just posted. But I told him he might be in a trusted zone to check his settings.

    ***UPDATE***

    He found that his On body detection is set to ON which left the security off so pretty much the trusted zone type deal. Thank you again everyone for the help and such. Glad to know that there isn't a flaw in security.
