    We need the first option.
    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 don't have the security screen activated. This demonstration works for both "Security screen" and "Lock screen". Press down on this option.

    We will see the first option says, "Lock screen.
    Show lock screen, but not security screen." That is the option that we currently have.

    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".
