How can I remove PIN from my lockscreen

Recently enabled FoxFi on my S5 - app required a PIN, and ever since I've been required to enter a PIN everytime I access the phone - it's a real PITA - how can I eliminate the need to enter a PIN when using the phone?

OK - I figured out a solution - I registered my phone with Samsung - then entered Settings>Security>Device Administrators - checked the box for Samsung Support & Protection - went to the Samsung website (after establishing user ID & password) and requested that lock screen be rest - Result - PIN request is eliminated - lock screen opens (as it did before) with siple swipe - color me RELIEVED!

Re: How can I remove PIN from my lockscreen

Welcome to Android Central! Are you unable to select Swipe in the screenlock options? If not, then go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and see if Foxfi is there and checked. If so, uncheck it and see if you can change the screenlock method.

If that doesn't work, try ​Settings>Security>Clear Credentials.
