    I don't use any security to open my note 4. I would like to try the fingerprint scanner, but if I do and have to use a password as a back up, can I ever do away with the scanner/password requirement and go back to just using a swipe to open the phone?
    Thanks, Errol

    Yes, you can always go back. The process is the same as setting it up, Lockscreen>Pattern, Voice, Face, Scanner etc.>Setup. Then to reverse it Lockscreen>No Lock, you will have to enter whatever you entered for your lockscreen before one last time to confirm that you the owner are not wanting to use any security lock to open the device. Then you will be back to nothing.

    Thanks, Thats what I needed to know. My S5 would not let me go back to using nothing but a swipe. All options except pin and password were grayed out once I set up a pin to open the phone.

    I Googled it and found this video for the S5 and how to disable the security lock... Sorry you were unable to remove it before. I see how that could be a pain.

    Thanks, but doesn't work on my Verizon S5 (I still have it). All options are greyed out except pin and password when I go into screen lock and I'm afraid it would be the same on the note4, and don't really want to take the chance until I am sure.

    Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

    OK, found the problem. FoxFi was preventing me from changing the lock screen back to none.

    Thanks for the help
