(Galaxy S9+) After pie update, a new lock screen appears. How to disable?

Hey folks,

My Galaxy S9+ just updated today (2/23/2019) and while I like the new design, there is one thing that I dislike and I haven't figured out how to disable.

When I leave an app running which prevents the screen from turning off (Pokemon Go, workout apps), after a short period of time, a padlock will appear on the screen and dim the phone. To return the phone to normal, I have to swipe the padlock away. I want to disable this feature, but I haven't found any option to do so in settings.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Another quick question: I liked it when my phone would light up and show me notifications before the new update (example: it would say "Steve sent you a snapchat"). Now, my phone just shows an icon when I get a notification and I have to get past the lock screen to see what it is. Anyway to restore this feature?

Thanks in advance!
