Backup Everything to iCloud or iTunes

The downgrade is essentially a clean installation of iOS 13.2.2, which means that you will lose all your files or settings along the way. So if you are planning to take this route then it is absolutely vital that you take a backup of everything to a secure location. You can either use iCloud or iTunes. If you are using a Mac then you can backup your device using Finder.

Turn Off Find My iPhone

Launch the Settings app, navigate to Apple ID > Find My then tap on Find My iPhone / iPad. Now turn off the top-most toggle switch labelled Find My iPhone or Find My iPad. You will be required to enter your Apple ID password.
