I don't have the special offer ads. I have a magnet cover case. Whenever I wake my kindle, whether it's by opening the cover or by pushing the wake button, it still has me swipe to unlock it. I didn't used to have to do this. Previously when I would wake it up, it immediately unlocked and went back to the last screen I was on before it went to sleep. I don't know why this changed. I contacted customer support and they told me several things to do, like restarting my device, deregistering it from my account and reregistering, but nothing has worked. After that they told me it must be how it was designed, as if they wouldn't know this ahead of time before telling me things to do. Has anyone else had this issue and know how to fix it?
I've had this since the last Paperwhite update and it's driving me NUTS! I've never had to swipe to unlock before and now EVERY TIME I open my magnetic Kindle cover I get told "Your next great read is waiting - Shop Now" even if I'd just put it down for a moment!
This isn't a subsidised ad-supported device I'd bought, I just want to continue reading my book from where I was with the absolute minimum of fuss as I've become accustomed to and don't want to have to be constantly swiping my screen. f I want to buy a new book I use the perfectly adequate search feature that's on the home page, I really don't need to be constantly told I need to buy more books - I already own a few hundred of the things!
As advised above, check to make sure you haven't accidentally turned ON Special Offers for that device at Content. You might also want to check the device settings to see if the Manage Home Screen View was turned back ON.
