iOS Account Creation Failed: Unable to create the keypair

Hi just pointing out a possible bug in Anchor iOS when trying to create WAX account on Anchor iOS. I click Add Account > Create Account > WAX Account > [Name it xxx.gm] > Untick Require Biometrics > Tick Require Passcode > Click Create.

I get an Account Creation Failed error and it says unable to create the keypair.

I did not have Face ID enabled on the iPad or a passcode required to unlock. I enabled FaceID and went through the process again, but with biometrics, and I was able to create the account. I’m not sure if this is a bug or limitation with an unsecured device, but the error message could point you better towards the fix. At the very least I hope this thread might help someone in the future. Cheers.

Thanks for the report, that’s expected behavior with an unsecured device although we should definitely make it more clear what’s happening and catch the error earlier
