    Anyway to remove the lockscreen pattern after I installed the certificate from foxfi. On my old note 2 I was able to typer the wrong password 5 times and it would ask for my Google password and it was removed. Can't do this on the Note 4. Please help it's so annoying.

    In a web browser go to Android Device Manager and do the Lock option which will let you reset the unlock password. After that it should let you remove the lockscreen on the phone.

    Anymore info on this? I selected the lock option on my browser and it gave me a pop-up saying that a password was already set and that I didn't need to set a new one.

    Never mind found this from their support page (BUMMER):

    In order to skip the mobile hotspot plan (an extra $20/month) FoxFi needs to install a certificate to bypass the carrier blockage. A certificate installation is considered "security changes" on your phone, and Android 4.1 or later system requires a screen lock if *any* security changes is made (Android 4.4 further limits Screen Lock options to PIN or Password only). For Android 4.4 or lower, we have made a "Remove Lock" app that you can use to remove the Screen Lock while keeping the FoxFi Certificate installed. You can install the app apk file from here. This app will NOT work on 5.0 (Lollipop) or later, however your phone should allow you to set Pattern Lock instead of PIN lock.

    Things have changed since my reply on 3-2-2015, Android Device Manager no longer will remove the lock from your screen. The new workaround is to use Find My Mobile from Samsung at https://findmymobile.samsung.com/login.do . Log in and tell it to unlock your device and the lockscreen will be removed.
