Passcoded your iPad but still worried someone could access your personal pictures via the Photo Slideshow button on the lock screen? Luckily, if you don’t want to use the slideshow button, there is a very simple way to remove it. We'll show you how... after the break!
Before you begin, you need to make sure you have a passcode set on your iPad, otherwise you can't change the selection that turns it off.
- Launch Settings
- Tap General
- Tap Passcode Lock.
- Turn the Passcode On.
- Once you have a passcode set, the “Photo Frame” option should become active.
- Change the option to 'Off'.
- The button will not appear on your lockscreen anymore.
