Android 4.2 is here and it’s been received with mixed feelings. I have it on my Galaxy Nexus and although I love it, I can see and have replicated a lot of bugs. One feature that has been introduced in Android 4.2 is the lockscreen widgets. Now some would call this a bug, simply bugging them with disdain and not enjoying it at all.
Whether it’s the dislike for showing data on widgets that anyone that wakes a phone can see, some feel it’s a horrible experience and gets in the way and others just want it gone with the lockscreen being simply a lockscreen.
Want to know how to disable this pain in the derriere? Well now an app called Lockscreen Policy developed by Chislon Chow lets you disable the lockscreen widget elements and leave you just the clock as before.
Disable widgets and/or camera access on the lockscreen under Android 4.2. Reduces the occurrence of glowing rectangle animations at edges when screen is turned on.
(Formerly Lockscreen Features Policy)
1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the ‘Activate device administrator’ screen, choose ‘Activate’
4) Turn off undesired features using the toggle switches. Changes are made instantly. Make sure your lockscreen is enabled to see the results.
Simple, effective and gets you back to how you wanted to be in Android 4.1 and before. Use the link below and you can say, bye bye lockscreen widgets!
