Additionally, you may use your Apple Watch to safely accept permission requests from apps and unlock your computer. This article will therefore detail the procedures that must be followed in order to unlock a Mac via an Apple Watch.

How to Unlock Your Mac with Your Apple Watch

Activating Auto Unlock is a straightforward and speedy process once it has been established that you are in possession of two devices that are suitable for use with one another.

1. System Preferences can be reached by clicking the Apple logo, which is situated in the top-left corner of your screen, and selecting that option from the drop-down menu that appears. After signing into your Mac, select the option from the menu that is labelled “System Preferences.” It is also possible to attach it to your pier using a pin (its icon looks like a grey gear).

2. To access the General tab, go to the Settings menu, then pick Security & Privacy from the drop-down menu that appears at the top of the screen.

3. Check the box that is labelled “Activate iPhone” while you are wearing your Apple Watch and having your iPhone unlocked. With your Apple Watch, you can unlock apps as well as your Mac. When prompted to do so, enter the password that you use to access your Mac.
