    Right now I'm not using a lock on my phone because I have an ICE widget (in case of emergency) that has contact info, doctor info, allergies, etc on my home screen.
    I want to use the Knock Code lock but I need to be able to add the ICE widget before being comfortable with using it.
    Not rooted, 4.4.2
    Again, can widgets be added onto the stock Knock Code lock screen and if so how? I've tried all I can think of (long press blank area, lock screen, settings) to no avail
    Thank you

    I just have my lock screen set to Swype but if I Swype up where the time is it will give an option to add a widget. I have a flashlight widget set on mine.

    The one I want to add isn't an option via the normal way to add widgets. That's why I'm wondering if I'm missing something.
    Oh don't necessarily want anyone who knows how to push a power button to have full access to my phone but at the same time a pin, knock, etc unlock code isn't the best thing to have in an emergency and one can't tell the emergency personnel the unlock code.
    I've looked on the Play Store for an alternative but nothing seems to fit what I'm looking for
