[APP] Lockscreen Policy - Disable Android 4.2+ Lockscreen Widgets, Camera

Published to Google Play, Here
(Attached v1.2.2, v1.2.3)

This gets rid of the lockscreen widgets and camera on the homescreen on Android 4.2 or higher.

If you have root, you can disable the bold-hour clock widget from the action bar menu, under 'Clock Hack'. (since 1.2)

The app is completely free. I don't foresee adding anything much to this app (I could add a couple of toggle widgets).
This is a lightweight app at 80KB.

There's a known issue under 4.2.2:
With the clock hack disabled, the clock widget toggles between the bold hour clock and the non-bold hour clock every other unlock. If your device is rooted, you can use the clock hack to get the device to consistently display the non-bold hour clock. Otherwise, there isn't anything I can do for you immediately. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had no control over this.

Quote:

Disable widgets and/or camera access on the lockscreen under Android 4.2.

Usage:
1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the 'Activate device administrator' screen, choose 'Activate'
4) Verify settings, and press 'Apply'
5) To change settings, either press the 'Reset' button or hit the back key from the app to return to the setup screen

Uninstall:
To uninstall, uncheck the application from the 'Device Administrator' list under 'Security' in 'Settings'.

Privacy:
I do not collect any personal information with this completely free application.

No permissions other than device administrator required.

Thanks! The flashing widget placeholder on the lockscreen was annoying as hell.

This app succeeds where stock Android has failed.

Thank goodness...
The lockscreen was seriously driving me nuts. I hated seeing that widget box every time I turned it on. Thank you for providing a way to turn it off. I just wish Google had made it optional in the first place.

Now, if you could just help me change that ugly, ugly clock font.

It might be possible to change the default clock as more devs support lockscreen widgets, because I think it's just a widget there...

Installing. The lockscreen changes haven't impressed me much.
