Using your iPhone or Apple Watch to unlock your Mac

By currenttech38087532, Jun 15 2016 05:32PM

Apple announced a new feature in macOS and iOS due this fall that will allow you to unlock your mac using your Apple Watch or TouchID on your iPhone. If you don’t want to wait until then, you can use an app called MacID. You install the MacID app on your phone and a helper app on your Mac and you can log in to your computer without having to enter your password. Another great feature is that it uses bluetooth to detect your iPhone’s proximity and can lock your computer when you walk away and unlock it when you come back. I have been using MacID for a few months now, and I love it. I no longer have to worry about my coworkers playing practical jokes when I step away from my computer. There are many more features including the ability to send clipboard contents back and forth. You can find out more about MacID at macid.co.
