Z971 screen unlocked by anyone?

I let several friends who did not know my lock pattern or have a finger print stored unlock my phone simply by opening the Google voice app from the lock screen and telling it to open anything on the phone. Is there a way to remove it or require a password before it does?

    hi, @Dsaffo1 , welcome to the forum.

    If I understand correctly, you are referring to the Google Assistant voice command (the little mic icon on the lower left corner of the lockscreen). The Google Assistant should not able to launch any apps or do anything on the device that requires you to unlock it if you have a password set for the lockscreen. So as long as your phone is locked with a lockscreen patter/password or have your fingerprint set to unlock the device, you should be fine. Though be sure it is locked, I set mine to locked when I press power button or immediately after sleep.
