    We want the option called "Screen lock sounds, Play sounds when locking and unlocking the screen".
    When we lock or unlock the screen, we'll hear a noise. It will play a very quiet sound. It does take up some battery and is not a necessary setting. This is why the default setting is off. It may help confirm that the phone is locking or unlocking. It may be useful for some people.

    Press down on the box and a white check, inside of a green box, will appear.

We can hear a very faint hiss. It doesn't make very much impact, so the default setting is off. We can activate it if we choose.
