Re: Remove lock screen camera icon

@scoobyfizz there's no way to remove the lockscreen shortcuts, as far as I know, other than using a lockscreen app from Play Store. I wouldn't recommend that, though, as those apps rely on hacky workarounds and can make it easier for someone to bypass the lockscreen and unlock your phone.

Re: Remove lock screen camera icon

So how do you stop someone using the camera from the lock screen or the voice assist?

If it is the same as the XZ1C then you go to your Camera Settings and turn off Quick Launch. The Camera icon should now not be showing on your Lockscreen.

What do you see if you follow this:

 

Open the camera > settings > more > scroll to the bottom

You don't get more on an xz2 compact. Settings is one continuous list. With NO quick launch option.
