Screen locking

After the most recent software update my screen now goes dark and when you touch it it pops up with a swipe to unlock, it's never been this way before so how do you turn that crap off?

Hello @Patmann21=

Thanks for the post.

You can Access Always on Display when you swipe down from the Notification bar, then select the Settings icon.

  1. scroll to and select Lock screen
  2. turn on Always on Display

You can adjust the Always on Settings, and Edit the your screen appearance.


Please check out the link to change your settings, then post back to share your success.
