Hey guys, my Lumia 920 was in my pocket today and when I took it out it prompted me to create a password. I tried to back out but it wouldn't let me, so I created a password in hopes to be able to remove it later. When I wen't to my lock screen settings, the password switch was set to on and it does not let me switch it off (it's grey).
Has anyone else experienced this and know how to remove/disable the password option in this case?
Thanks for your help in advance!

I put in the password... I know the password... that's not the problem.
The problem is that I can't switch the password setting from on to off, it's grey. That's my problem.
I've tried restarting the phone but that doesn't help :(

This is how I managed to get the password off and rig the irritation of entering password every minute:
SETTINGS --> LOCK+WALLPAPER --> PASSWORD ON (BLUE) ---> CHANGE PASSWORD (ENTER YOUR PASSWORD) ---> WALA!! (PASSWORD OFF)
Hope this will work for everyone with the password problem.

Turn on your Windows mobile. Press on Setting then press on Lock Screen, there will show a Password, front of the password line has a small liver, if you pull the liver front, password will be enable in your system and if you pull it back password will be disable. Thanks

It is because of the linked outlook account in your phone. It ensures security.
If you want to remove the password lock, you should remove the outlook account linked.
2. slide right to applications
3. select people
4. scroll down to accounts
5. long press the outlook account and then select delete
6. go back to settings > systems > lock screen and then turn off the password

greyed out password option - cannot select off
it is because a workplace account / exchange account has been added and the workplace policy dictates a password is required
simple steps to remove password requirement from timeout: [honest]
settings => email + accounts
now remove any exchange accounts that are not required any longer...
settings => workplace
now remove any workplace accounts - use delete icon [trash bin]
it will then display 'password no longer required'
settings => lock screen
you can now swipe left to change password option to 'off'
it will request 1 x last time to enter the password
you now no longer have a password after timeout...
hope this helps.
