Welcome to Android Central! If the phone is idle for long enough (like for an hour) and you come back to it, does it then ask for the PIN, or can you still unlock it with a swipe? If this is the case, then try using Android Device Manager to remotely lock it with a new PIN/password. This should work if the phone somehow thinks that a screen lock is not set; but if the phone does think it has a lock already set, then ADM won't do anything, and will tell you that since the phone is already locked, there is no need to remotely lock it.
