Ejecting to bare workflow caused AsyncStorage to reset


We have decided recently to eject to bare workflow to enable using non supported expo packages that were needed. Everything went fine and the update is on the store and working since yesterday.
However, we’ve had a major issue that only happened on production, some testers reported being disconnected upon updating to the new app, and we’ve seen a lot of our users use the forgot password tool. This means the app redux store which is stored on AsyncStorage was reset somehow and the new app could not use the old store. It’s embarassing for us as it means many users will be discouraged to log back in. We never encoutered the issue on TestFlight nor on Android beta until the store update went live.
Does anyone know what could’ve caused the issue here ?

Thank you,
