    So no matter where I look it seems my S8 locks approximately 2 mins after I turn the screen off of myself. Any way to extend this?

    Settings, Lock Screen And Security, Secure Lock Settings, Lock Automatically

    You can set the lock time from Immediately all the way 30 minutes

    Yeah this is when the screen turns off on its own. However, when I power off the screen, those settings don't apply it seems that when I turn off the screen myself, it locks after 2 mins regardless.

    Sorry that didn't work. Did you try the setting underneath that one - Lock Instantly with Power Key - ?

    I did but that is just to lock instantly or not to do so. It's something odd with the S8. I never had this issue with my other S's.
