Hello-

Go to settings> Touch ID & Passcode  
disable (toggle off) Touch ID for iPhone Unlock
Once you toggle off you can then change the time you require a passcode by accessing  Require a passcode

Hi, I assume you are talking about auto lock time. In that case use this way:
Open Settings.
Tap Display & Brightness.
Select Auto-Lock.
Set the sleep timer to the time that works best for you.

This will leave your IOS device unlocked up to 5minutes or without auto lock.


Hopefully this helps you.
