Door locks. What are the locking\unlocking options

Howdy
2017 MKC

If I understand correctly, if auto lock is enabled, all door will automatically lock when the vehicle reaches 12 miles an hour. (At least that's what the video said.)
But not before reaching that speed.

And auto unlock will unlock all of the doors when the vehicle is turned off and the drivers door is opened.

I'm trying to figure out what might be the best settings (for the above) as well as any manual locking procedures to follow, for my wife when she is driving alone.
I'm also trying to learn if there are other lock oriented settings that I might take advantage of.

How do others have the above features set ?
And what locking and unlocking procedures do others follow when entering and exiting their vehicles ?

It's all about security, car jacking, that sort of thing.

Thanks in advance for replies.

If your wife is driving alone, then I would set the unlock so that when the door handle is touched, only the driver's door unlocks rather than all 4 doors.
