Moto G Screen Lock - how to turn it off & revert to no screen lock

I have a Moto G. Today (after owning the phone several years), I turned the screen lock on (pattern). I've changed my mind and would prefer to go back to having no screen lock. (I remember the pattern, it's a nuisance.) Unfortunately, that option is now greyed out.

Is there any way of changing it back to not having a screen lock without doing a reset?

Hi Anne. Navigate to: Settings > Security > Certificate management > Clear credentials. When complete, verify that the 'none' option is visible and not greyed out.
