How to turn off GUI screen lock on rhel 7/centos 7

It was very annoying when I work on rhel 7 and screen gets locked when it was idle for some period and again I have to logged in from virtual box and then on server. I search on web to turn off screen lock on rhel 7 and it was hard to find out.
rhel 7 have different options to turn off screen than in previous versions.
So I thought to create this post so that people can easily turn off their screen lock without wasting their time searching for it.

1. Open the rhel 7 GUI. In Applications go to System Tools.5

2. Click on Settings.

3. Select Privacy.

Enjoy your work without screen lock interruption.
