    Ahh, yes, I do.

    Got rid of it now. I rarely use it anyways. Hopefully this will be the end of that lock screen

    This worked for me, the app that was causing the second lock screen was "Battery Defender" uninstalled and second lock screen is gone

    Uninsrall Photo Editor Pro if you have one. With update, this one brings malware app causing "charging" lockscreen with ads. Also, if you want to identify such app, check memory usage by apps in last 3 hours and see if there are any that you didn't use

    For me it was also Photo Collage Editor. Gotta say I dropped my rating of that app fast and hard.
    I have no problem with ad supported apps, but ones that display ads outside their app and turn on COMPLETELY UNRELATED features without permission... thats not welcome.

    I actually liked the screen, just not the ads.

    Hello!

    I just want to let every know for me it was Photo Editor Pro by Aviary causing this problem for me.

    Note: Aviary also has a photo editor named only "Aviary" which does not cause this "speed charge lock screen" nuisance. I actually love the Aviary application so I recommend disabling updates for that app if you like it too.

    GO Keyboard is also causing this lock screen. A continuous running process of the app is labelled ".chargelocker", so if you have the lock screen issue and don't have any app on this thread, try looking for a similarly named process under the "running" tab in your app settings.

    So, 2 days ago, a new lock screen "on top of" my regular lock screen "magically appeared" on my Note 4.

    It shows time/date in upper left corner, and a ... menu in the upper right that allows me to turn off speed charging. Then, a % charged indicator, and underneath that, some annoying ad... at the bottom, there is a "slide to unlock", which then goes to my Nova Launcher lock screen, which I have setup with my fingerprint scanner.

    So basically, now I have to go through an additional lock screen and view an annoying ad to get into my phone.

    I have no idea where this came from, and to the best of my recollection, I haven't added any new apps.

    Any idea how to get rid of this?

    Thanks for your help!
    This just happened to me. I've been getting these weird notifications about an app I've had forever and choose to ignore them but when this happened and I found this thread I decided to look into my apps as I haven't downloaded anything new in a while. I went to settings and running apps and that old app with new weird notifications was running a service or secondary app called " lock service". The app itself was "photo collage". I deleted the whole app just now and have plugged and unplugged my phone from the charger and locked and unlocked my phone which usually was bringing up this charging screen but now I haven't seen it. Hopefully that means I took care of the problem!
    Thanks guys! Hope you're able to get rid of it too

    I have an old ZTE Z998 that started displaying this annoying unlock screen after installing a bunch of updates. The unlock screen went away after I uninstalled TouchPal updates.

    Hi everyone
    I'm here to help and this works for my galaxy s5 just follow the steps:

    1 you have to connect your phone to the charger so that add on starts running

    2 you have to press active apps button which is on the left side of your home button

    3 as the screen with the active apps pops up you have to click on the little circular diagram icon in the bottom left corner of the screen

    4 now hidden running processes should appear you have to remember the names of the apps that appear in hear and simple force them to stop

    5 now simply go to app menager and uninstall the app that was creating the problem in my case it was Zcamera app


    I hope I helped and you can get rid of that annoying s***

    For me it was the ASTRO File Manager. I've had this app for a few years with no problem. It must have updated overnight because the lock screen ads just starting appearing today, 05/18/2016. I unistalled the app, restarted the phone, and the ads are gone.

    Thanks to everyone for sharing!

    I just googled this charging lock screen, and this Samsung forum was the first hit on the list. I have a Mototrola Droid, which was doing a TON of updates earlier this morning, and this lock screen just appeared today. When I went into the Active Apps screen, the window for this lockscreen thing had the same icon as the Photo Collage, so I've uninstalled it.
    But after reading through this forum, I wonder WHAT THE HECK is going on?! It's not related to just one app, or to just one developer, so what gives??
    How many more apps am I going to have to uninstall after this? I've got rid of Photo Collage, but I also have ES File Manager, so I expect that to cause the same issue shortly.... I'm not a big app junky... I guess this is one way to reduce the amount of space taken on my phone so I can have more room for pics haha!

    In my case the reason was APP LOCK (the one with Chameleon icon) - which was recently updated but now is completely removed from Google Play.
    Here is the description so you can see what app i'm talking about http://locx-app-lock-and-photo-vault...wn.com/android

    So just a couple of days ago I suddenly came upon this EXACT issue, suspecting it was caused by an app I recently downloaded. The lock screen ads/blue liquid charger panel appeared any time I turned my phone on from a sleep. I deleted all apps recently downloaded, even using LockOut and McAfee to scan my phone with no help. It turns out the issue was caused by Photo Collage Editor by Zentertain, an app I've had for MONTHS with no issue. After reading someone else's reply, I realized I've had an error show up on my screen about the app, asking me if I'd like to restart the app or ignore the message. I went into the app's settings and sure enough, there is a box to uncheck to remove the lock screen ads!
    In short, you may be experiencing a problem from any number of things, not just a recently downloaded app. I like the idea another user suggested of checking your phone's usage and see which apps are running when you aren't using them. THANKS SO MUCH for helping to solve my problem!

    There is a settings button on the new lock screen. Just click on that and unchecked the box it takes you to. Problem solved. It is quite annoying!

    None of these suggestions have gotten rid of this screen for me, unless I missed something. Has anyone done anything that actually works for this issue specifically?

    I only get this screen when I plug my phone in to charge
    I have the same thing but if you press he gear icon on the top right hand corner and unchecked the box problem solved

    Thanks Candice! I wasn't able to track down the app on my wifes phone, but at least I can disable this intrusive lock-screen by using the gear icon and disabling it like you mentioned.

    Arg this took me ages to track down what was doing this, like others, ads are one thing, but this new screen meant it was an additional step to unlocking your phone when charging!

    For me, it was ES File Explorer, just go into settings and untick 'Charging Boost' at the bottom of the list. What a load of bs!

    Thanks for the help here.

    I had the same problem. I went to Settings > Apps, and clicked on the Running tab. This lists all the Apps that are actually running including those in the background. I found several that I haven't used in a very long time. So I clicked on them and found a Stop button that would let you stop the process. The culprit was an app called Photo Editor Pro. There was a sub-process called Lock Service that I believe was causing the problem. I decided to uninstall the Photo Editor Pro app because the Lock Service was imbedded and could not uninstall it separately. There is also a Settings icon in the top right corner of the Lock Screen, as well as a Setting option inside Photo Editor Pro for turning off the Charging Lock Screen. I believe Photo Editor Pro is an Ad supported Free App, so maybe other similar Apps use the same Power Lock Screen.

    Hope this helps.

    I got the sAmerican thing. ES file Explorer recently updated and added a bunch of new features and took the liberty of activating them all. If you have that app, that is most likely where it came from. Today I pressed the wake button to my phone and discovered that the lock screen had changed to a blue liquid that corresponded the percentage of my battery. Also had an advertising, was able to disable it through the menu button on the top right corner. Also noticed on the notification tray was a button that said allow special permissions. When I clicked on it it launched ES File Explorer. HOPED THIS HELPED!!!
    That was driving me mad! Thank you! It was ES file explorer for me. I upgraded to pro and it went away. I hated all the rubbish they added to the free version anyway..
