Find&Save Cash Dash Inbox

Please make iOS lock screen camera access optional via Settings

My request to Apple on the camera icon on the iOS Lock Screen:

The camera icon on the iOS lock screen is to a child like a Fart Gun from Despicable Me 2 which is to say they can’t stop using it.
Please, make it an option.
If you have young children you can likely relate, if not you should really see the movie it’s quite funny.
But seriously. Can we get an option here?
I’d prefer not to repeatedly have dozens of blurry, pictures of the carpet, couch, floor, ceiling, siblings, goofy faces, all variety of inanimate objects and alas things which shall remain nameless streaming to all my other iDevices let alone getting shared on the big screen via Apple TV.
Seriously, an option. Please.

Found this quote from a data researcher at Microsoft interesting:

I don’t make decisions from my gut. I make decisions based on as much information as possible, and then I make them with the least emotion I can
