    I have quite a few apps on my phone and one day noticed that my lock screen works rarely and that if it lets you through without a pin and you press the home button it locks. I booted my phone into safe mode and the problem was solved. My settings are that the power button instantly locks and the timer is immediately.

    I purposely configured my phones so that the Power Button will lock the screen.

    So far, have never had an issue with unlocking the screens.
    I have used a pin code, and the swipe to open methods. Both worked as they should.

    Most likely you have resolved your problem. Something got out of sorts.
    What I might suggest now, is that you power the phone down, then do 3 finger boot into the Boot Menu and then select Wipe Cache Partition.

    maybe something hung up for a bit?
