Have been researching this for a while and have only found others with the same unanswered question: Is there a way to force the system into pass code protected lock when the passcode is otherwise set on a timer? And I mean on the actual device, possibly with an Activator action. Remote locking or respring or temporarily changing the settings all seem a bit tedious. I'm sure you can imagine several reasons for wanting the option of doing so. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Possibly the feature is available inadvertently in another app with a different advertised intent?
