    Phone: Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T
    Platform: MIUI Global 12.5.5 Stable
    Android 11 RKQ1.201004.002
    Android security update 2022.05.01

    There is an icon at bottom left corner of the lock screen. It looks like a tulip flower (See photo 1) and the slightest accidental swipe right on it causes the Wallpaper Carousel popup (Photo 2) to launch. I have to tap on ‘Don’t agree’ each time it happens. Even being careful how I handle the phone it is very difficult to avoid sometimes. I’m sure Xiaomi have designed it that way and it may be built-into the OS but: -

    Is there any way to remove the Tulip icon from the Lock screen?

    Not familiar, but have you tried using the search bar in settings? Search for lock screen or other similar searches and all the related settings should come up.

    Thank you. Yes, I have tried various Wallpaper Carousel (WC) settings: -

    1. WC is turned off.
    2. Consent withdrawn for WC.
    3. 'Discover' is turned off.

    None of these remove the icon and, if I accidentaly swipe on the icon whilst handling the phone, even by a small amount I am prompted to turn 'Discover' back on. It seems like a deliberately designed trigger trap similar to push-notifications and very annoying.

    Many users decided to uninstall the Wallpaper Carousel app to avoid that annoying issue.

    My Xiaomi has an Amoled screen with an Always On Display so try looking for a setting similar to this without the AOD option :

    Always On Display and Lock Screen - Wallpaper Carousel

    I can turn off Wallpaper Carousel in the lock screen, though the Lock screen icon remains.

    @Javier P - Thank you for your photo. It worked.

    Edited extract from photo that worked: -

    MIUI 12.5 allows non-essential System apps to be uninstalled so uninstall ‘Carousel’ app via Settings > Manage apps > Uninstall then select the app and ‘Uninstall’ it. The tulip icon is replaced by a ‘dead’ circle icon that does nothing but allows ‘swipe up to unlock’ function.

    I hadn't realised that you can uninstall some system apps so I never even thought about doing it.

    Consider this thread solved and thank you again.
