How to disable Android Lock Screen

Lock Screen is the first thing you see every time you turn your screen on. It’s main purpose mainly is to keep our phones safe from accidental touches, or from someone else’s access.

However, there are some people who are actually annoyed by this feature. They simply want to start using their phones as soon as they tap the button, without entering complicated patterns, or passwords. So, if you’re one of them, we’ve got you covered.

In this article, you’ll find out how to disable the Lock Screen on your Android phone, and save a few seconds, that you would normally spend on unlocking it.

Remove the Lock Screen in Android

Disabling the Lock Screen in Android is as easy as unlocking your phone, you just need to change a few settings, and you won’t have to deal with this feature ever again. Here’s exactly what you need to do:

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone (you can find it in the menu, or in the Notifications bar, but you probably already know how to access it).
  2. Go to Security > Screen Lock.disable-android-lock-screen-2
  3. Now, just select Nonedisable-android-lock-screen-1
  4. The phone will then ask you to enter your PIN or Password. Enter it, confirm, and the Lock Screen will be disabled.

There you go, after performing this action, the Lock Screen will be completely disabled on your Android device, and you’ll be able to use it when you want, immediately.

On the other hand, we don’t recommend disabling the Lock Screen on your phone. Why? Well, read below.

Why you shouldn’t disable the Lock Screen

Entering the password every time you want to access your phone can be annoying sometimes, but that’s not a reason good enough to convince you to completely disable the Lock Screen. If you don’t have any security method on your phone, it will be extremely vulnerable, and accessible to anyone.

Also, a lot of unwanted apps can be opened if you don’t have the Lock Screen turned on, depending on the screen sensitivity of your phone. You certainly don’t want to end up calling someone accidentally, or sending gibberish message to your Facebook friends. If you think unlocking your phone is time consuming, think again, because two seconds probably won’t mean anything.

As Android advances as the OS, the Lock Screen also becomes more and more customizable. Especially in Android Nougat, where you have a lot of amazing Lock Screen options, like the ability to set different wallpapers to your Lock Screen.


All in all, disabling the Lock Screen in Android is fairly easy, and it doesn’t require any big effort. However, it is recommended to keep this feature turned on. So, if you’re planning to turn off the Lock Screen, think about it once again.
