I would very much appreciate any thoughts anyone has on tackling the following:

OK, so if you have lock screen switched off, your device goes straight in, with no unlock or swipe screen whatsover. All good.
If, as I do, you use "trusted devices", this theoretically bypasses the lock screen and gives the same effect. Except that it's doesn't. What you get is a swipe-away screen instead of the lock screen.
Does anyone know a legitimate way, or a fix or crack or tweak, or a 3rd party app, that gets rid of the swipe-away screen, so that using a trusted device or location to bypass lock actually does so, giving the same result as not having lock switched on at all, rather than just replacing the lock screen with a swipe screen? Many thanks.

It really depends on your phone. When my phone enters my car and is connected via bluetooth, its a trusted device. I simply can turn my phone on and it will work without a lock screen. I'm using an S8.
Then again, if I did have a swipe screen, its the same thing as having no lock because you dont even have to swipe to open the phone. Not worth trying to look for a 3rd party app for something so minor, in my opinion.
