SecureStore super slow on android app restart

Hi ! I am using the SecureStore to store my JWTs. The thing is that after i have closed my application and restarted the app, it takes forever for the getItemAsync to fetch my token…I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. I have used async/await, but my app just freezes for ten seconds or so. I am testing my app on a RedMI Note 8 pro. Has anyone else faced a similar problem ?
