Android Central Question

When I unlock my phone the Phone app automatically opens. As I only use the phone app about 10% of the time I unlock my phone it is a nuisance to have to close it every time. How can I have my phone open to the Home screen when I unlock it? Thanks!

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? Depending on the phone, the lockscreen may have a way to unlock the phone directly to the Dialer (like swiping in from the bottom left or bottom right). You might have to swipe directly up to unlock to the homescreen.
