Hi everybody,

I upgraded my S7 Edge to Nougat last week, and now I've noticed that I cannot de-/activate Airplane Mode/WiFi/Bluetooth from the lock screen/quick settings panel. I am prompted to log in every time I click the Airplane icon from the locked screen.

Any idea if there is a setting where I can control this? Thanks!

And, as always, it comes at an inconvenience price :) But really, what improvement in security does it bring? In case somebody steals the phone, he can shut it down and take the sim card out, till it reaches a location without wifi connections...

I too desire this ability for quick access to airplane mode. I use it frequntly. There is little security gain with this change. I would prefer the option to configure this setting.
