Question [Q] [Q} job requires a PIN lock screen?! Workaround?

I have set up my email app to receive emails from work. Now because of this, there are these new security "features" that are mandatory on MY phone! It is mandatory to setup a PIN code or password lock screen. I don't want this ****e! I need to receive these emails on my device but...

Is there a hack or workaround so that I can go back to no PIN code simple unlock of the screen whilst continuing to receive the emails? I have ROOT.

If you are rooted, pretty much all of the roms bypass that!

Thanks for your reply! I found the answer to my own question. I installed the "Keyguard Disabler" from within Xposed. This app was created for the exact frustration I have. Email security settings taking over lokcscreen settings. THANKS XDA!
