    I use the thumb security on my note and almost every time I swipe, it opens my browser to the flicker page. It makes me want to slam the phone on the ground. Do any of you guys know if you can get this off of the lockscreen or somehow disable it. thanks

    Are you referring to flipboard? If so then pinch the home screen, select home screen settings and uncheck flipboard.

    I'm on Verizon and here's what my lock screen settings look like. The only icons available are for the phone and the camera. Did that flicker icon come with the phone or did some app add it later? Is there a flicker app in the app list that you can uninstall or disable?

    If you have the Flickr app installed, look at that apps priority settings from the settings and Notifications screen in settings. You may be able to remove it from there.

    ELHHLE- I have the same options as you in my menu for the lockscreen. Here is a pic (taken from an ipad) of what I'm talking about. I don't have flicker installed on the phone.

    Somehow, either through an app or your network supplier, your Lockscreen camera shortcut points to the Flickr website. Investigation of the "courthouselovers" could help.

    Here's my lockscreen. Are you using the stock launcher?

    Under settings, Finger Scanner there's an option called Web Sign-in. Is it turned off?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that you try changing your wallpaper. That text may be part of the picture.

    LOL, I was thinking the same but it shouldn't be functional.

    I'm thinking that, if the picture used for the wallpaper was downloaded from Flickr, it's possible that Flickr embedded a link in the picture to "advertise" where it came from, sort of like a watermark. Of course, this is all conjecture on my part, but it's something simple that jamjordan can try. Just change the wallpaper to one of the stock wallpapers and see if it still has the flickr logo under the camera icon.

    Exactly the same here. Samsung Galaxy S5

    I found it to be the weather live app from the lock screen.

    Thumb print to unlock - thumb slightly over the screen links to the embedded Web link within the lockscreen image.

    Turn off your live weather app lock screen!!!
