Android Central Question

I'm a 15 year iPhone user making the switch to Android, the S23 finally ticked enough boxes for me to give it s shot. So far the transition has been decent but I'm having one issue I cannot figure out.

I have set up a PIN, Face ID and fingerprints and they all work well enough. However, I'm randomly getting a message when picking up my phone after a few minutes that I need to enter my PIN after a restart..But I'm not restarting my phone, and as far as I can tell it's not restarting on its own because I don't see or hear the reboot animation. It seems like it's locking itself somehow.

I've checked and it's not tied to the screen timeout. I'm not seeing any other kind of lock timer or option anywhere, what am I missing?

Any help is appreciated
