Hi, I have the Android S5 and want to turn off the 4 digit pin I have to enter whenever I use the phone?

How do I turn off the 4 digit pin feature on my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone?. I have tried: "Lock Screen" in settings. It asks for my pin but doesn't get rid of it and doesn't give me a "none" option... I think it was caused by: Not a problem, just a pain.
