You’ll need to replace the lock set as the button latch within the inside handle is worn or bent. Given this is an outside door you should get a deadbolt installed either within the same handle plate or independently.

The easiest way is to go to the local hardware store with a good set of pictures so you can get the same model. If you have the make and model that would be even better! You might find there is a second version with the dead bolt.

Adding the deadbolt is not overly hard if you have access to the needed tools.
