      1. I have the same problem I believe. I tapped VPN settings and it immediately asked for PIN setup, I entered a PIN but cancelled the VPN setup. The VPN list is empty, but the PIN toggle is saved somewhere and I can’t get screen lock option to None again. A quick google search told me about clearing credentials or administrator accounts, but none of that seems to work. Any possible solutions? I have no VPN app or VPN setup, I just want to get rid of the VPN pin (if possible)
