Locked iPhone with opened Brave browser - FaceID problem

Description of the issue:

Sometimes I can’t unlock my iPhone with FaceID when I have my Brave browser opened and my phone locked. It seems that it’s conflicting with FaceID which Brave browser can use to unlock a browser. One day I just bricked my iPhone because I could not get in it.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Make sure that you have FaceID enabled on iPhone
  2. Open Brave browser on iPhone
  3. Enable FaceID unlock for Brave browser in Settings
  4. Go out from settings
  5. Let Brave browser opened and lock the iPhone
  6. Wait about 3-4 minutes
  7. Try to unlock your iPhone with FaceID and swipe to get in

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
It looks like that FaceID which should open my iPhone actually proceeds successfuly but when I try to swipe up it registers FaceID which should open my Brave browser and it just locks again. Usually after 10 or 12 times trying to unlock my phone and get in it it works.

Expected result:
Unlock my iPhone with FaceID, then unlock my Brave browser with FaceID.

Reproduces how often:
Almost every time.

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in Settings):

Mobile Device details

Have you experienced with other apps open as well, or just Brave?
