Phone Info set as administrator


Thursday 15th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I recently changed my lock screen to unlock using a swipe pattern. Well, I hate it and want to go back to the original settings-just swiping the screen to unlock it. However, I go into Settings - Lock Screen - Screen Lock, but most of the options are greyed out. Swipe, Motion, Face unlock, Face and voice, & None are all greyed out, with this message below them: Disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage. So, I go into Settings - Security, and it tells me that Phone Info is the administrator (under Device Administration). I try to remove that by hitting deactivate. Nothing happens. Also, below the Phone Info is the Android Device Manager. This is not checked, and I'm very hesitant to select it because it tells me that Google Play services can *Erase all data; *Change the screen-unlock password; *Lock the screen. Obviously that makes me uncomfortable. From everything I've seen online, it looks like I need to make myself the device administrator. But I don't know how to do that! My phone is not rooted...I don't even know what that is and from what I've seen

Face unlock disabled


Monday 02nd of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I had been using face unlock on my new Maxx. Somehow that got disabled over the weekend. Now when I go to Security settings the Face Unlock is greyed out and it says, " Disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage". What did I do??? How do I undo it?

Face unlock option greyed out


Tuesday 17th of September 2013 / androidforums.com
I have an HTC One S 4.1.1 Sense 4+ I was using face unlock or PIN when it didn't recognise me (most of the time).I wanted to turn this off but find the face unlock option in Security is greyed out and the message 'disabled by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage'.I now want to turn off the PIN screen unlock and just use the ring. If I delete all the credential certificates will this allow me to access the face unlock option but will this cause other problems with installed apps?Or should I use 'Reset Phone'?

Can't turn off "Screen Lock"


Tuesday 28th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Some time ago i installed a certificate on my phone cause I needed it for my college Wifi.It automaticly set Screen lock on my phone.After I uninstalled it I cant get the swipe unlock on my phone back.I tried restarting the phone, I deleted the certificate but it still wont let me use swipe unlock.When I try to change it it says "Disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage."And only Pettern, PIN, and Password are possible. Swipe, Motion, Face unlock, Face and voice cannot be chosen.I know there are some 3rd party programs like 'no lock' but is there any way I can fix this?
