    Hey folks,

    My Galaxy S9+ just updated today (2/23/2019) and while I like the new design, there is one thing that I dislike and I haven't figured out how to disable.

    When I leave an app running which prevents the screen from turning off (Pokemon Go, workout apps), after a short period of time, a padlock will appear on the screen and dim the phone. To return the phone to normal, I have to swipe the padlock away. I want to disable this feature, but I haven't found any option to do so in settings.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Another quick question: I liked it when my phone would light up and show me notifications before the new update (example: it would say "Steve sent you a snapchat"). Now, my phone just shows an icon when I get a notification and I have to get past the lock screen to see what it is. Anyway to restore this feature?

    Thanks in advance!

    I too am not loving the fact that my AOD and lock screen no longer light up and show me my notifications. How can I restore this feature?

    If you're talking about the "edge lighting" you just have to go into the settings and reset it. I selected the apps that I wanted to light up and I even noticed that each one can have its own edge color... the padlock question I'm not sure about, sorry

    For the padlock, change the lock screen timing. (But you can only go to 30 minutes - and anything more than about a minute compromises security).
