Being required to enter screen lock PIN, not fingerprint to open mobile app

I've been using the Authenticator app for my personal account without issues for around a year. Usually when I open the app, I'm required to use my fingerprint (which is what I want). However, I just opened it and am now being required to enter my screen lock PIN, not my fingerprint.

I looked at my settings and all seems to be working. Is there anyway to get the app back to using my fingerprint instead of my PIN?
