    Welcome to Android Central! What do you want to change about the lockscreen? Are you trying to change the lockscreen wallpaper, or the actual screenlock method?

    Here's how to post screenshots:

    Do you have your work account on your phone? Sometimes they are secured a different way and won't let you mess with lock screen. Is there an app that is overriding lock screen in developer options?
    The way I change is to go to settings, display, wallpaper, lockscreen and select where you want to get image from.

    or go to gallery select an image, press menu,scroll down to set as, press what you choose to set image as.

    If this isn't working you may have a security setting being overridden by an app or developer option setting.

    My lock screen was stuck on pin unlock and the only options I had were pin or password unlock every other option was greyed out. Found the fix on another forum, go to settings , then security scroll all the way to the bottom and clear all credentials. Now all options are once again open to me
