    Im quite new to Android.
    I use to have dash clock notifier widget for my lock screen, but now a new app somehow is taking over. It started coming after i backed up my phone, and it activates shortly after rebooting.

    I have enabled lock pattern and widgets, but this new "simple clock" kind of app does not require any lock pattern and I cant find out what app it is.

    Its not possible to swipe left to change widgets etc, and the lock screen image is not there.How to remove this app from my lock screen?-screenshot_2015-01-27-08-26-06.jpg

    Have you tried going into SETTINGS> APPS, then scrolling through? It has to be installed somewhere, and that will list all your downloaded apps. Unless you have hundreds it shouldn't be too hard to locate. Just hit UNINSTALL.

    Hi. I have alot of apps, but I found out what it was because it made a notification in the notification center.
    The app was Locker Master, and it is now gone.
    Strange that its not an easier way to locate what app is disabling security features and overwriting the lock screen settings.

    Yeah, but I guess most people who have such an app. know they've installed it, which you seemed not to.

    Glad it's now sorted.
