Disable Modal for fingerprint.authenticateAsync()

Is it possible to disable the modal on iOS while waiting for fingerprint authentication?

Some apps allow you to check for fingerprint authentication in the background without showing a modal. The way it works in Expo I’ve ended up having to place a fingerprint icon on the login screen so that people have to click on that first, to then bring up the fingerprint modal and start scanning.

It would be much better if we could start scanning in the background without requiring the user to click a button first, and without obscuring the login screen permanently with a scanning modal.
