    Just got my Note 5 yesterday and I was really digging it up until this issue reared its little mutant head. BTW, I'm still digging it-this thing is badass!

    Anyway, I was just putzing around with the settings and decided to try the PIN unlock option for the lock screen. Needless to say, that got old pretty quickly but when I went back into settings, the swipe unlock is grayed out with some message of the option having been "deactivated by the administrator".

    Is there any way to restore that feature without completely resetting the phone?

    BTW, it's a bummer you can't include attachments on this forum, although I understand the hit on the web server's space.

    Have you already tried clearing credentials in your security settings?

    Ha, the trick is to add a time limit to the locking!
    I turned my swipe to unlock off, since I only use the fingerprint. With that, you must turn the time off, for it to work. So, if you turn the time lock on, i.e. how long before the device locks, it will work
