    Prior to my recent Marshmallow upgrade I had an app that would allow me to disable the screen lock without changing my lock/pw settings. It was simply a toggle and was very useful for when I am home and don't want to keep inputting my PW. After the upgrade, this app no longer worked and despite trying multiple others, none provide this toggle. So now I have to access the Security settings, enter my pin, disable locking completely and when I leave the house I have to enable locking and redefine my pin. Any better solution fo this?

    Yep, set up Smart Lock (Settings > Security) with your home address as a Trusted Place.

    Thought this was the answer but unfortunately it just doesn't work for me. I have tried the following:
    -added/deleted/added my home as a trusted place, including editing the map location
    -in Security\Trust agents toggled Smart Lock on/off
    -Then I tried using Settings\Location\HTC Location services and linked Home to my home router
    It still relocks after 15 minutes whcih is the max I can set
