Device locked manually, what does that mean?

I recently got MIUI 12.5 on my device. Since that time, in many cases face unlock on my Mi Note 10 Lite does not work, i.e. there is no face unlock symbol on the lockscrean, but instead a message saying "Device locked manually". What exactly does that mean, why is face unlock not available all the time? This is really annoying :-(

Any hints would be really appreciated, thank you.
