Why do you get the Use PIN after restart message

The answer to this question is very simple - you had your phone turned off or just restarted it and your smartphone security settings require your PIN in order to proceed using it.

In this case you cannot use the fingerprint or other security options since they are considered secondary and will be available after the phone is unlocked with PIN.
