m51 ask for pin but do not require swiping up

Hi,

I received my Samsung M51 today and I like it a lot. My only issue is that I am disabled and swiping up to dismiss lock screen is very tedious for me. I'd rather be prompted for pin upon pressing the power / fingerprint button, (also not having to swipe up when device is kept unlocked by a trusted agent. According to lock screen settings, I can only skip swiping up if I forego any kind of security, which understandably I'd rather not do. Can you help me out?

look for settings and biometrics in the settings and see if you can change the way your phone asks for info to unlock it

This is all I get in the section of settings that you point out

So basically the only way to not have to swipe up is not to have any security whatsoever. But I am asking whether or not this can be tweaked in anyway, either via developer options / adb or maybe if samsung would consider updating the software to be more accessible in this way,

I really like the M51 too. On mine if you just lightly place your finger on the power/fingerprint button without pressing it in it unlocks without the need to swipe. Hope this helps!
