Issue Description

<!--When I lock my phone by pushing button in the back, I find it takes pictures when i put in my pocket. I have a security password design to open my phone, but the camera starts automatically. I've been to the shortcut screen to take it off, looked through other lock screen options, but if I press the back button, screen goes dark but pressing volume button brings the camera on and it randomly takes pictures.. I would like to turn it off and only open phone after swiping my pattern and choosing the phone. I do not need auto camera. thanks!

I also have by smart lock on body turned off, camera still turns on and takes pic with volume buttons

Hi @deborahs.haeu09,

To turn off that shortcut, tap Settings > General > Shortcut keys (about halfway down.) On that page, turn off “Open Capture+/Camera.” This is oddly hidden at the very bottom, you have to scroll down to find it.


Thanks that did it! It is buried and skipped right over that.


Thanks @deborahs.haeu09 and @jedi_n,

I’ve added an article to our Help Center based on your question and answer.
