Windows Phone 8 Basics - Lock screen - How often do I need to enter a password to unlock my phone?

If you've set a password yourself, you can choose how often you're required to enter a password from your lock screen, which can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes, or each time you unlock your phone. If you have a Microsoft Exchange account through your work, the Exchange administrator will set the options you can choose.

This setting is different from how often your phone goes to sleep, which you can set separately.

To change both options:
In the App list, tap Settings Settings icon > Lock screen.
Do one of the following:
To choose how often you're required to enter a password from your lock screen, tap Require a password after and choose the time you want.
To choose how often your phone goes to sleep, tap Screen times out after and choose the time you want.
