    Default So, how do I get rid of my password protection ??

    I was messing with my phones settings and activated a password protection by going to (I think) "options", "security options", "general settings", and then enabling "content protection".
    I set a password but then decided that it was a pain in the arse having to input password every time I unlock the phone.
    I went back into the settings and disabled content protection, pressed save and assumed that the password protection would be disabled, but it hasn't ?
    I still have to enter a password to access the phone !
    Any ideas on how I can completely remove the password that I put on the phone ?????

    Regards,

    Bully go to options>security options>general settings>password: disable
    We must overcome the notion that we must be regular... it robs you of the chance to be extraordinary and leads you to the mediocre.

    Do you have Password as a separate entry under Options? I believe some newer OS versions have relocated it. When you find it, Chrisy's instructions will still work. When you exit the Password app, you'll be asked to enter it one more time. This is to protect you from someone disabling your password without knowing it.

    Look for it under Options / Password. I believe it is now a top-level option.

    EDIT

    Yes I do have a separate entry for password.

    Thank you very much, that has resolved my problem.
