    Exclamation How to disable screen lock - Android 4.0.3?

    I need help to disable the screen lock on my TF300T running Android 4.0.3 - none of the instructions I found in google searches make sense in this menu structure. I have the pattern lock currently enabled but I want to remove screen locking altogether if possible.

    Don't mind if someone tells me this is a duplicate thread, as long as they actually provide a link to the thread where this question is answered. I only found one possibly relevant post in this forum and it was declared a duplicate without a link to where the question was answered.

    Thanks.

    Choose Settings--and scroll down to Security.
    Choose Security and at the top you'll see the option Screen Security.
    It will be set to your current security setting--in your case, pattern.
    Click it, it will probably ask you to confirm your pattern--do that.
    You will then see a bunch of other options, one is None. Should be good to go.
    ....post back if you have trouble.

    Go to settings>security>lock screen. Tap on the "screen lock" button at the top and select none. This should be the menu structure. Let us know how it goes.

    I can see all the options like Pattern, PIN and Password, but None, Slide and Face Unlock are greyed out with a message that says "Disabled by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage".

    I have no idea what other problems this may cause, but I went into Security > Clear Credentials and after that the greyed out options were accessible again and I was able to revert to "None" for the moment.

    Is it worth trying to use Facial Recognition? Or is it more trouble than it's worth? I remember seeing it on my daughter's Asus laptop and it seemed to work OK there ... even prevented her identical twin from logging in as her.

    I tried it out just to see how it worked, it was ok.
    Not good in dim lighting & it appears to work a little smoother if you do

    I've got a Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 and it doesn't have this option. Apologise if that's off-topic here but you are high up the google results for this. Do you know how to stop automatic screen lock on Android 4.1.1? I can't download GTA 3 as the screen lock interrupts it's setup download process.

    Sv: How to disable screen lock - Android 4.0.3?

    If I try the facial recognition, does it have some way to unlock the pad if facial wont work? Would be really annoying to brick the pad just because it doesnt recognise my face..

    Sso-as you go through the steps of setting up facial recognition you will be prompted for an alternate method.
    ie. Pin or Pattern. Can't get locked out. Cheers
