    I can remove phone lock altogether, but if I want it to lock with a pin, I somehow cannot bypass an intermediate screen where it requires me to swipe before I can get to the screen to enter my pin. This step is unnecessary and annoying! How do I skip it? I want to press my home button and have the "enter pin" screen automatically pop up. I have already disabled things like Smart Lock.

    Welcome to Android Central! This is a somewhat common question in the S6 forum as well, after the Marshmallow update. This is how things work on Nexus devices, so what you're seeing is closer to "stock" Android. If you want to avoid the initial swipe, consider using Smart Lock (instead of disabling it), or use your fingerprint scanner.

    I normally use fingerprint scanner but after a power down it asks to unlock with my pin. I set the "Secured lock time" to "Instantly with power key or...". Now it never asks me to swipe.
