Very easy 

Turn off this option " Quick lunch " and will be removed in lockscreen

Nope if you look at screen shots from my xz2 compact no option for that. Please see above posts.

@Fizz_daz maybe now it is renamed to launch with camera key. Check the options under there.

Nope that is set to off anyway and is to do with the bottom right button on the side. See my screen shots it is off. Other options are launch and capture or launch and are to,with the button only. Perhaps someone who actually owns a xz2 compact could provide an answer rather than random guesses?

bro we are just trying to help, after all this is a global user based forum, keep it friendly and constructive, you could contact Sony directly, but I do hope someone with XZ2 figure this out, again, keep it friendly, respectful and courteous.

I double checked on my XZ2 Compact and there's indeed no "quick launch" option, and the "launch with camera button" doesn't disable the lockscreen shortcut.

Re: Remove lock screen camera icon

Many thanks for confirming and I did originally post this in the xz2 compact forum but it was moved to here as I think is is device specific. So apologies for my frustration but hopefully you can see why I was short with my answer :-(

Re: Remove lock screen camera icon

Hi @scoobyfizz and @Fizz_daz!

On Xperia XZ2 series devices, it is not possible to turn off Quick launch and that is why you are not able to find the setting and remove the icon from the lock screen.

I'll make sure to forward the feedback regarding this as there are no other settings to remove the icon from the lock screen and I'll move the thread to the Xperia XZ2 Compact board as this is device specific! Slightly smiling Face

I hope that answers the question and explains why you haven't been able to find the setting!

I have to laugh as that is where I first posted this question.
