1. Navigate: Settings -> Lock screen -> lock type. If presented, enter the current PIN, password or pattern.
2. Tap Password.
3. Enter a password (4 to 16 characters, including at least one letter) then tap Continue.
Tell me when it's done, and I'll send the next part of the instruction.

So I don't understand why it locked

2. To disable screen lock:
- Tap 'None' or 'Swipe'.
- If prompted, review the info about biometric data (Face, Iris, Fingerprints) then tap Remove data.
- To confirm, tap Remove.

Okay, got you
Please, check if it's possible to update your Samsung device
From a Home screen, touch and swipe up or down to display all apps, tap Settings > System updates > Check for system updates.
if you did not set a password, then perhaps this is a bug in the firmware, so a system update could fix it.

It actually updated for me while I was locked out

You can try restarting your device to see if the problem is gone.
