I have an irritating issue with S21+ LED flip case. Screen will lock immediately on close and cannot find a setting to disable this function.

Is very annoying when using NFC to tap to pay, because when accidentally close cover NFC will off. With previous flip casing I had on S8+ this did not happen.

Any clues please?

Thanks bill-e but that is not the solution, though I did find it, the answer is not so obvious. I already had the delay time set to 30 seconds, but the screen would instantly lock as soon as the cover was closed.

The correct solution was to disable "Lock instantly with Side key" in the Secure lock settings. When the flip cover is closed it turns the screen off, as does using the side key when the cover is open. When this option is enabled, closing the lid locks the phone as does the side key because the screen off action then triggers the phone to lock.

I would suggest this be incorporated into the LED case manual, because it really does not follow intuitively.

Try Settings->Lock Screen->Secure Lock Settings->Autolock when screen turns off-> set to the desired delay time.
