Hi

Quick question, I'm on the latest kitkat 4.4.2 and my device is encrypted for my work email account. I have to use a PIN to unlock the screen

I do not have the option to add a lock screen widget. I've checked in the security settings where I'm led to believe the check box is to enable this but there is no option there to do this. Any ideas, is this because my device is encrypted?

Thanks

For security reasons, widgets are not available on a lockscreen security setting other than Swipe. This because you can use them to unlock the screen bypassing the security.
