Edited by Thor, Ash0hley, Eng, CWebb

Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to turn off the lock screen and security screen on an HTC One M8. When we turn this phone on, it's going to take us to the lock screen. We'll have to unlock the screen. If it were a security screen, we would have to enter a password, or use a swipe pattern. In this video, we are going to learn how to turn all of these off. For now, when we turn the screen on, we will see the lock screen.

    It ways "SCREEN SECURITY" in the gray bar, and below it, it says, "Screen lock". Right now it says, "Lock screen" below that. This is the only type of protection we have activated.

    We want this option instead
    .
    It says, "No lock screen. Don't use lock screen or security screen." It will get rid of both of them. When we turn the phone on, we will go straight to the phone. Be aware that it makes our phone more vulnerable, and offers no protection. If someone wants to access or steal our phone, they can access it without any problems. Let's press down on this function, "No lock screen". Afterward, underneath "Screen lock" it will say, "No lock screen".
