Getting rid of screen lock - Android HTC One

I tired using the built-in Verizon Hot Spot on my Android HTC One, which required a pin number for security. That obviously put a requirement for a pin number to unlock the screen as well. I don’t want that! On the security settings, the option for “none” is grayed out, so I can’t select that. Any suggestions on how I can get my unlocked screen back?


BTW – how do I get on your “teachers” forum. I’m teaching classes on computer topics for a genealogy group as well as for SrNet.

Betty Jo,

As long as you are using the phone for a hot spot, you must have the security on. The unlock screen is the security. No way around that I know of.

I have added you to the Teachers forum. Welcome.
