    Is there a way to force my S8 to lock? I'm tired of having to unlock it all the time while screwing around at work. I want to set the lock out time to 30 minutes but if I want to lock it before that is there anyway?

    You can use a third part app from the Play Store to create a widget on your home screen to lock your phone. Another option could be using a custom launcher, like Nova, and set a gesture for this action.

    I moved your thread to the S8 & S8+ fórum for better visibility.

    Sure.

    Set up a trusted location and then manually lock on the lock screen.
