Lolipop "Lolipop swipe to unlock"

oclaf, Feb 11, 12:52am
Before I begin the arduous task of going back to Kitkat, does anyone smarter than me know a way of disabling Lolipops new lockscreen? I don't want my notifications displayed for the world to see, so my lockscreen is devoid of any useful information, yet i still have to perform the annoying upward swipe to reach my pattern lock. Before i could just hit the power button and flick in my pattern. Now I have to swipe past a screen I don't want nor need. My Googling has revealed thousands of equally annoyed people but few solutions other than retrograding.

Settings,security, lockscreen maybe able to turn it off and set your own as you like.

Unfortunately no. That was the first place I tried.

Damned naggy update. Open up the phone every 20 minutes or so and there it is, polity asking me to update - again.

i dont have swipe screen and turns on with pattern. I have set it at lockscreen-screenlock-pattern entered twice then set backup pin twice -ok which brings me back to lockscreen and screenlock should read secured with pattern. No more swipescreen. On rooted note3 audax-lollipop v20.7

Depends on your phone - my N4 needs swipe to unlock but my G3 goes straight to the unlock pad

Nexus 5 no swipe or pin screen running lollipop. Settings and security
screen pinning: off
screen lock: none

I removed those options and facial rec on Kitkat but don't know if that has made a difference?
Good luck, really annoying when options seem unavailable.

Thanks, still no luck. It a moto G2 running its stock Lollipop. Really annoying. I keep turning the phone on, starting my pattern and ending up on camera because i'm not doing the silly "swipe up to unlock" bit first. It's just such a pointless screen if you're not getting the notifications.
Even has a bug flag. http://is.gd/53Qd0T
Looks like no solution yet. Going back to Kitkat. What a hassle.

Settings/personal/security screen lock - none.
That's with custom a ROM on my S3. Not sure if its the same for stock.
