Setting time until screen locks (not sleeps)

    I recently got my phone back from being serviced, and as I adjust the settings back to my preferences, I can't seem to find the one that allows me to set the time until the screen locks. I am not talking about how long until the display goes to sleep. If I have the sleep timer set to, say, 1 minute, I still want the phone to remain unlocked for some period beyond that, maybe 15 minutes, so that I don't have to unlock it every single time I pick it up. Can someone point me in the right direction, or has this feature been removed in one of the recent security updates? Any help would be most appreciated.

    I'm running the O preview on my 6P so I don't know the exact location, but I think you should find it somewhere near Settings > Security > Cog icon next to Screen lock > Automatically lock.

    Hopefully that will at least get you close. :)

    Ah, thank you so much! I didn't realize that was a separate selection from "Screen lock" on the left. Now I feel stupid. Haha.
