    Hi, recently bought Samsung galaxy 8 and discovered when it does overnight software updates it won't restart without a pin. Because of this my set alarms on my phone don't go off in the morning. Why can't it just restart so rest of functions still work? Is there a setting somewhere I can change this?

    Not the ideal solution, but it would work. ("Find" the phone, turn it on and you're in. Unless he turns security back on every morning, which - even with a widget to do it - would be a little annoying.)

    DND affecting OTA updates, with the alarm excluded, would be a better solution, if Samsung (or even Google) were to do it. Maybe just download the update but don't install until the user gives the okay.

    Go to Settings, Software Update and change your time and switch to manual.

    You can set the device to not update overnight. It's not an every night situation, it's once a month a best (or worst depending on how you see it).
