pin after sleep

When I leave the house I put my laptop to sleep and close it for safety, but since a few days it doesn't ask for my pin anymore when I open it.

Chosen solution

By the way, I usually lock the screen manually when I leave my desk. Old habit from working in an office with a lot of pranksters.

To lock it, hold down the "Windows" key and tap the L key.

Windows doesn't ask for your pin when it wakes from sleep? Hmm... is there any chance that Windows Hello is using facial recognition to unlock the screen?

I started doing a search but actually, I think you can interpret the results as well as I could:

Sorry, of course that was a Windows, not Firefox question. Thank you for answering anyway. Your tip about doing it manually is helpful.
