Just on this (because it might be relevant later): I think you're making
fingerprint changes
sound worse than they are. The only thing that gets lost is people who
authenticated
fingerprints out-of-band, but haven't yet confirmed this in their client
and then upgrade.
This could be as easy as a warning before upgrading "Do you have any
fingerprints that you
still haven't validated in the app". Even Signal (who seem very focused on
UX) changed their
 fingerprints at some point AFAIK.
