Whenever you try to athenticate macOS asks for a PIN instead of a password. This happens if you paired your key at some point with macOS.
Terminal.app and unpair it:
sudo /usr/sbin/sc_auth unpair -u YourUserName
sudo /usr/sbin/sc_auth unpair
Take out your key if you have it plugged in and reboot.
Your key should be unpaired from your username. Remember you don't have to pair your key to use it. You only have to pair it if you want to use it for macOS authentication.
