passcode entry....

Very annoying. Due to my thumbprint not working because of construction work and it not being recognized, I select passcode to get into my DT database on my iPad but, the thumping requirement keeps popping up before I have time to enter my passcode, making my database on my iPad inaccessible. Not sure why, when choosing passcode, the thumbprint entry keeps popping up. Any way around this?

I am filing an issue on this, but you can still type the passcode in.

After several quits, I was able to successfully enter the passcode.
