How To Fix macOS Ventura Loading Login

Macs especially those packing Apple Silicon chips are known for their instant wakeup times and quick login interface. However, it seems that in these cases, the computer is performing additional scans!

In this case the culprit seems to be the FileVault security option. If it’s enabled on your computer, data is encrypted for protection and log-in will take longer.

If you’ve accidentally enabled it and don’t really need it you can easily disable it in:
System Settings -> Privacy & Security -> FileVault (Thanks Snooklefloop for the fix!)
