    It seems I can swipe at the bottom area and it unlocks, how do I disable it?

    It seems that I've accidentally unlocked it several times when putting it in the pocket, by swiping something.

    Are you swiping on screen or accidentally unlocking by having your finger on the fingerprint sensor as you put it in your pocket?

    I thought without some kind of 3rd party app, the only way swiping on screen would unlock is if you *first* press power button and then swiped on screen. But if you are sure you are not accidentally pressing power button, only other thought I had was you are accidentally long pressing on the virtual home button. There is a setting that to have screen turn on with this:

    Settings -> Display -> Navigation Bar - see if "Unlock with home button" is turned on or off. Maybe turning off would help

    It's already turned off, strange.

    I don't use the fingerprint sensor at all, never set it.

    Weird. Are you using Nova or some other 3rd party launcher, which may invoke a double-tap to wake up the screen?

    Alternatively, do you have "easy screen turn on" set to ON in Settings -> Accessibility -> Dexterity and Interaction? That allows screen wakeup with a hand wave over proximity sensor, but this is normally turned off so you probably would have remembered if you changed it to on.

    Yes, using Nova launcher.

    I cannot find a setting that enables it to unlock the screen by swiping. Yet that's precisely what it does.

    I don't know if it's the default setting in the phone or some setting in Nova or what.

    The answer is no.

    Go to Settings, go to Lock screen and security, select Screen lock type, click something other than 'swipe to unlock' , set up new security type.

    I have a password as the unlock type but it takes 5 minutes to engage the auto-lock.

    if within that 5 minutes I swipe the invisible home button, it unlocks, which it frequently does. How do i disable that?

    Settings, Lock screen, Secure Lock Settings, Secure Lock Time, make your selection here.

    Proximity sensor would unlock if enabled on your body.

    It's called Smart Lock, but, it should be called Smart Unlock.

    So true. I almost forgot about that setting which will basically keep your phone on constantly if you're carrying it.

    I did. If I take out the phone before that limit, it unlocks by accident via the home button.

    You can disable this by going into Settings -> Navigation bar -> Hard Press Home Button disable this setting. It seems that if this is enabled it overrides the "unlock with home button" even if you have the "unlock with home button" disabled. I was getting super annoyed with my phone continually being unlocked and finally figured it out. Hope this helps you!
