FaceID / Biometric Unlock in Files App iOS


The Biometric Unlocking Process in the Files App appears to be extremely slow. It takes approximately 5-7 seconds before the content appears after starting the unlock process.

*Slow meaning, slow as in comparison with similar Apps with a similar function.

iOS 16.1.2 / v2.4.3

I tried to reproduce that but can’t. I use faceID, and the unlock is working flawless. After unlock I have my vault files listed immediately.
So a delay of 5-7 seconds seems not normal.
Can you give more information?
Where is the vault located?


It’s on a Nextcloud, connecting through WebDAV.

I have several Nextclouds and it’s the same on all of them - big or small size Vaults.
