I'm sure (I hope) someone else has also noticed this, but:
What's the point of having a code in the Lock Screen, if I can effectively bypass it by simply pulling down the menu from the upper screen?
Just go to Settings -> Lock Screen -> Remove code (or something)
I've tried it.
I have a Lumia 640 LTE, and I hope this is not universal to all Lumias... It's just sad.
I kinda felt safe to leave it anywhere unnatended, but now I'm sure anyone can just steal whatever is in there. It's not security at all
It was me. Posted as a guest, forgot to login
Lumia 640 LTE Windows 10 (I'm not sure the version, if you can tell me where to check it, I will)
I have my 640 encrypted so a PIN is mandatory.
If, when locked, I swipe down on action center only certain things can be accessed. Flashlight, WiFi toggle, Camera.
Anything that does work, like camera, is segregated and I can't access anything else from there. The only pictures I can see are the ones I take that ad hoc session. If I try and see all pics it demands a PIN.
If it is settings, All Settings or just long tap WiFi to get into WiFi settings... I need a PIN.
DO you have PIN enabled? Or are you basing these observations on a phone with no PIN required?
I thought I only had to set a PIN to my Lock Screen, and I was set.
How do I encrypt it?
What I meant is: I can remove my PIN to Lock Screen, by simply accessing All Settings->Lock Screen, etc... in the action center (and I don't even need to type it in, just press Remove)
I've done it, thanks a lot.
I can't access anything through the action center except toggles without putting in my PIN, and my L640 is NOT encrypted.

What is your "require sign-in" time period set to; it's possible that you were still signed into your phone when the lock PIN pad was shown incorrectly and just didn't notice.
If you're sure there's a problem, I'd love to see a video of this happening - it's not an issue I've seen reported before.
Are we 100% sure the phone is protected by a pin code? Some people on here get confused by SIM pins & PHONE pins.

Unless it is another W10 bug.
It's not a bug, Microsoft would not release any build that could compromise basic security. It's most likely the lockscreen timeout still set to the default 15 mins in lockscreen settings (see pstatus's answer above).
