Ubuntu – Disable password request from suspend – 18.04


How can I disable password request after suspend in Ubuntu 18.04? I have already turned off the screen lock but that didn't fix it.

I am new Ubuntu user. There seems to be lots of information on how to fix this in older versions.

For most Ubuntu distributions and versions try this in the terminal:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.screensaver ubuntu-lock-on-suspend

If the result is true then set it to false using:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver ubuntu-lock-on-suspend false

Just remember to reset it before your cleaning person comes over for monthly work.
