Hello
I'm having an irritating issue with my HTC M8s. My camera app will launch when my phone is in lock screen.

Additional details: motion gestures are turned OFF.*
Occurs when the phone is woken up with the power button, most often after taking out of my pocket.*
I have my lock screen set to come on immediately.*
I have a PIN lock screen.*

Any ideas why this would happen? How do I stop this from happening?*
Let me know if any other information is needed.*

Many thanks*
River

You probably have the "volume button opens camera" setting on. Check it in motion launch gestures setting

I don't know about your phone, but on a Nexus 6P running Marshmallow, double-tapping the power button loads the camera app without requiring PIN entry.
