How do I remove PIN when accessing my Facebook App, Gallery App, Email App and Camera?

Sometime, it looks like I accepted an APP that had me put in a PIN in order to protect a few of my other APPS (such as Facebook, camera, Gallery, Email, etc.). It is very frustrating when you take a picture and you're ready to take the next one, but you can't because you have to enter the PIN again. Same thing with Facebook; if I go into a friend's posting in order to put in a comment, or read other friends' comments, I have to re-enter the PIN.. . When my phone was in sleep mode, I had to enter a PASSWORD in order to unlock it (which I don't mind doing). Because I was having issues with my APPS in having to put in a PIN each time I want to access them, I changed the settings on my phone so that I no longer put in a PASSWORD but simply swipe my phone to open It.. . HOW DO I REMOVE the feature that requires me to put in my PIN each time I want to access my APPS?. I have tried: Just about everything.. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure. I most likely received an Email that said I should put in a PIN every time I want to access Facebook, Camera, Gallery, Email so that no one can access those if I should lose my phone.

No idea how I put the pin lock on my PC, guess I just pressed something by mistake?

I never had a PIN before so no idea of what could be. Tried 0000 and 1234, no work
