One of my colleagues just used my phone to take well... unwanted photos while I was away.
The problem is: the phone was locked, but the camera was still usable.
After a deep search, I didn't find any way to remove the camera shortcut from lockscreen, or require unlocking the phone before using any feature !
Is there a way ?

Yeah, all you need to do is download a theme that doesn't have the camera on the lock screen like the one @Lifelust suggests. Then if you still want your phone to look as it did just change your lock screen wallpaper back to the original as suggested above.

Just thought I'd add this little comment in case you were confused as to why you needed to change the theme.

Yes ! That's working great ! Many thanks !

You might want to try double clicking the volume down button.
There should be a setting to turn off that shortcut in the camera settings

That's from screen off or on your lock screen
