For the 22 Ultra, my S Pen unlocks my phone whithout me needing to put a code in or use my finger print. I just slide up the screen and my phone unlocks. This is with the phone shut off, it completley passes all security that I've set up. Has anyone found a way to make it so that a code needed when unlocking the phone with the S Pen?

@RINRIN1105 Do you have face unlock set up? typically you are more or less looking at the screen when you remove the S Pen.

Also, are you sure that it is locked and not just screen off?

I believe there was a setting that keeps your phone unlocked when the S-Pen was pulled out before you turned it off/locked it
At least I recall my Note 20 having this before I went to take S21 Ultra

This setting only applies when your Tab locks with the S-Pen still being used.
