    I tested the pattern lock and decided I don't like it so much. How can I remove it? I don't see any obvious option to do so.

    Thanks for any help!

    Do you have pattern set as your main unlocking method or as your secondary method? You just need to choose a different method to replace it. I use fingerprint as my primary and pattern as my secondary. Do you just want to swipe to unlock?

    Ah just figured it out! I had to switch it back to swipe unlock and it simply removes the pattern lock. Now for my next question...is there a way to simply have it unlock with the power button rather than having to do the swipe?

    Sorry, I hadn't refreshed my page to see your reply ABOS but, yes, you nailed it. Is there a way to have it unlock with just the power button?

    Sort of. Settings > Display > Navigation bar. Turn on the unlock with home button. If you have swipe screen for security. Hard pressing the location of home button will unlock your phone.

    Thanks again! It's not the most ideal but it seems like it can become second nature quickly.
