    Hi all... I currently have my phone locked with a password. I want to disable that and use a lock screen app. When I go to security and enter my password, I can't choose none. Any ideas why?

    Did you ever encrypt the phone? If so, then you have to use either a password or PIN. If you never encrypted the phone, then do you use a work email on it? That might require a password.

    Encrypt the phone, I doubt it since I have no idea what you are talking about. I do have work email on my phone, Microsoft Exchange I believe. Hmmmmm, so if I remove the email. Remove the lock, download a lock app, add the email back, that would work? Thanks

    You could also try going to Settings>Security, and Clear Credentials.
