Android – How to Disable the Lock Screen

No matter what kind of Android device you may have, chances are the lock screen will be the first thing you will see every time you press the power button on your device. After which, you might have to dismiss the screen before you can get to the Home screen. In order to dismiss the lock screen, you might have to do a swipe, or entering a specific pattern, password, PIN, or scan your finger on your device’s fingerprint scanner (if it has one) before you can gain access to all other features of the gadget. While it does protect your device, there are times when you do feel secure enough that you might no longer need the extra time to go through the lock screen just to gain access to, say, the camera app. If you’re not too worried about your device’s privacy, then there is a way for you to just disable the lock screen entirely.

Android - How to Disable the Lock Screen

Turn Off the Lock Screen on Your Android Device

Step 1 – First of all, and if you haven’t already, access your Android device by doing away with lock screen first. So input the password or whatever it is that’s protecting the contents of the gadget first. Then, head on to Setting; you can access Settings by going to the notifications pane and tapping on the Settings icon, or by searching for the cog icon in the app drawer.

Step 2 – When in the Settings menu, locate and tap on Security. You will then be able to see a menu item that says “Screen Lock.” This is where you will be able to select what type of lock screen you want for your Android smartphone or tablet.

Step 3 – As mentioned in the previous step, there are a number of options available such as Swipe, Pattern, Pin, and Password. But if you want to disable the lock screen entirely, you can just go ahead and select “None.”

Step 4 – By Selecting None, there will no longer be a lock screen every time you want to access all the features capable on your Android device. Hence, when you turn the screen off and then you want to use the device once more, you will be immediately taken to whatever screen was active when you last used the device. This is great when you want to get to the camera app, or other mobile applications quickly enough without having to type in a lengthy password (that you might even get wrong one or two times).
