Microsoft Authenticator asks me to confirm using my fingerprint, this used to work but now doesn't.

I click confirm and it asks again
After three times doing this it locks the app and advises me to restart my phone.

I restarted and tried again.

I uninstalled and re-installed the app.

    I have the same problem but not with the Fingerprint, my Oppo is asking me for the FaceID. I cant even change the settings to use fingerprint.
