    Welcome to Android Central! Are you swiping from left to right to unlock your screen? If so, that usually unlocks directly to the phone. Swiping from right to left unlocks to the camera. To unlock to the homescreen, swipe up.

    Thank you for this response! I had no idea. That's what happens when you upgrade and don't review the manual for your new phone. Lesson learned.

    Dang! Me, too! Searched several websites offering Samsung Galaxy S7 tips and tricks to no avail. Finally found the answer here. Many thanks, B. Diddy!

    It's fixed! Thank you so much! This is the first time since I had a Nokia 3210 that I have a top spec new phone, and the way I was swiping was causing phone keypad showing every time I have looked at my phone. It was beyond annoying. I just swiped up instead of diagonal (left to right, habit from old budget phone) and it's fixed, forever. Thank you, you, for answering, thank you whoever had the same question and thank you google. Now does anybody know why hotmail/outlook gives me so much spam in inbox, I have hardcore settings turned on now, however I have to check junk for ebay messages!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrr. Fix one problem cause ten more!!!!

    I don't get a chance to swipe. As soon as I put in my unlock code and click ok the dialed screen automatically pops up. That is how its always worked it just defaulted to my home screen not the phone keypad. Losing sleep over this

    Hi, I just figured it out as I was having the same problem. You need to turnoff the phone app shortcut on your phone.
    Go to: Lock Screen and Security
    Info and Apps shortcuts
    App Shortcuts
    Turn off left shortcut
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks a lot, very simple and I did not have any idea about that, I was already very upset every time I unlocked the phone

    My problem is the keyboard comes up when I go to use the phone. The only way to get rid of it is to take the battery out or have someone call me.
