a VERY simple fix for all these type of problems:
close the door while watching very closely where the striker on the door mates with the plate mounted on the door jamb. You will find the striker does not mate in the center opening and this lets the door just swing open without turning the handle.
Remove the plate and use a Dremel tool with a metal cutting bit or a cutoff wheel to enlarge the opening so that the striker does "catch" the plate.
Reinstall the plate and you are not quite done. You will need a chisel to remove any wood that was behind your newly enlarged opening in the plate.
This simple 5 minute process will solve your problem.
