Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Try these steps please>

Step 1: Go to  > System Preferences…

Step 2: Select Security & Privacy.

Step 3: Click on the General tab.

Step 4: Uncheck the option that says “Require password ***** minutes” after sleep or screen saver begins.” As an alternative, you can always increase that time, while still maintaining a certain level of security.

Step 5: A pop up will ask “Are you sure you want to turn off screen lock?” Make sure you’re completely ok with this and select Turn Off Screen Lock.

Once this is done, you won’t have to enter your password ***** time you wake your Mac after it went to sleep or after the screen saver was activated.
