It seems you have unity-greeter installed on Freya.

So remove it with the command:

sudo apt-get remove --purge unity-greeter

If you install unity desktop over Freya, light-locker will be removed.

So install light-locker with the command:

sudo apt-get install light-locker

Now reboot - this is required.
