Hello rahcat,
 
Welcome to the Webroot Community.
 
To change lock screen settings on my Android phone I go to Settings->Sound and display->Lock Screen.
The option is called 'Screen Lock'. There you can change the setting whatever type you want including 'Swipe' (No Security).
 
Be aware that if you have Webroot installed on your Android phone that you will get a warning from Webroot advising that this setting is unsafe and needs your attention.  Choose the 'Fix This Now' button and then tap 'Ignore (Don't Ask Again)' to get rid of this warning. Webroot does not recommend this setting for obvious reasons, but you are free to do as you choose. ;)
 
Hope this info helps,
