Depending on applications you have installed you may not be able to remove lock completely but you should be able to change it to a Pattern, PIN or Password.  I assume you are going to Settings -> Lock screen -> Screen lock

From there it will require a swipe to unlock and you should have option to change it to something else as mentioned above.

Go to Settings - Security - Clear Credentials.  Then you can remove that lock type and choose another.
