    How to Prevent Logging in From Lock Screen

    I've been able to bypass login on startup but I still need to log in from the Lock Screen.

    Any way to prevent this?

    Do you have a password policy option like in the tutorial below in your Settings -> Accounts -> Sign-in options by chance? If so, then I'm not sure that it can be bypassed.

    Do you have is set to require a password on resume from screen saver?

    I went to Screen Saver Settings and saw no setting like that.
    I even checked the power setting for requiring a password on wake up and it is set to no.

    It would be the On resume, display logon screen option.
