How to use your Apple Watch to unlock a Mac
Lock your Mac and walk out of range, into the next room or equivalent.
- Put on your Apple Watch and unlock it using your passcode. You won't be able to use Auto Unlock until you manually unlock your Watch.
- When you return and wake your computer and tap a key to launch the login screen, you'll see "Unlocking with Apple Watch …" on-screen for a few seconds, then your Mac should unlock, and you are good to go. You'll also see an unlock confirmation alert on your Watch.
