    Hi. I installed Pdanet+/ Foxfi and had to set up a lock screen password. I no longer need the app but I can't get rid of the lock screen. I went to Security/ Trusted credentials and removed Pdanet+, I uninstalled the app, I even booted into Safe Mode and tried to get rid of the screen lock- no luck.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks.

    Go back into settings(phone) security and lock screen, tap at the top where it says pattern.. Then select... None, slide, your choice.. :)

    If you've already tried that. Then I'd boot into recovery and clear the cache.

    Lock Screen isn't under Security, it's a separate entry under Personal. When I tap that, then go to Screen Lock, I have to enter the PIN, then every field is greyed out except PIN and Password, so I can't select Pattern or None.

    Thank you, that worked. Evidently the key was to clear all credentials, not just the ones for Pdanet/Foxfi.

    I appreciate the prompt responses from everyone.

    Nice. Just hope the OP from June sees this if they haven't already resolved it themselves.
