Are you talking about screen lock? Can you go to the system settings and change your screen lock to a different method?

I use pin code to unlock while in the car holder , before when I enter 4 # and it unlock immediately without click OK ..
Now I have to click ok all the time.. ?

Oh, I see what you're saying. The PIN unlock screen has always required an OK for any device I've used, but I've never used an S9, so I can't say for sure about your situation. All of the images I see when I search for "S9 PIN unlock" show an OK button present.

If you don't want to have to press OK, consider changing to a pattern unlock.

The PIN code can be 4 to 16 digits long. I don't use a PIN but I'm sure that the device won't automatically accept the correct code to prevent a thief from getting lucky and just happening to enter the correct code. Just like on your computer. The computer waits for you to click enter even after you entered your password.

Go to settings>lockscreen and security>screen lock type>enter your pin>tap pin>next page gives you the option to "confirm pin without tapping ok".
It probably got unchecked when you reset it.
I hate having to tap ok, so this is great!
