Thanks for the info.  Good to know.  And no, I'd rather not have to pay for it, lol

Nothing like this exists in Linux as far as I know. There was some development via GDM, but development did not progress, and we don't use GDM, we use LightDM.

Can be done, if you want to pay for it:

Is it possible to set up a pin to login, like you can do on Windows 10.  Would be much easier than having to type my password every time I lock it and when I go to logon every time.  Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
