Unlock your Mac with your iOS device (was MacID).

Overview

Note: while this listing is free, the app requires a $3.99 iOS app, which can be found here.

Unlox is a secure, fast way to unlock your Mac harnessing Touch ID for iOS. It works with multiple Macs and intelligently notifies you when you wake your Mac.

With Unlox you’re free to set a longer, more secure password for your Mac without being inconvenienced with typing it in over and over.

Doesn't work with my 2 MacPros. Automatic unlock (yes; it is selected) works initially, then within a few minutes the auto lock stops working on both Macs. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling: same result. Waiting for support after sending developer 2 emails.

Love this app! In combination with the paid iOS app it is highly configurable, enormously convenient, and includes some extremely helpful conveniences. Highly recommended!

Enormous Promise, Almost No Delivery iPhone 6 on iOS 8.3, Mac Book Pro Retina on Mac OS X 10.10.3 Will not perform basic unlock functions. iPhone app crashes regularly, Mac app does not type in password at login screen. App on phone can reliably lock the screen. App on phone cannot unlock the Mac when communicating with Mac App. App on phone can wake the Mac, that's it. App on Phone does get triggered whenever the SecurityAgent asks for a password. Using any authentication on iPhone does not result in password being typed on Mac to initiate password entry. Multiple re-installs of both Mac app and iPhone app yielded one unlock, then there after no unlocks.

Actually, the developer is really working hard at it. Dedicated and I am glad because I was oh so frustrated by the promise of this app suite. It is working so well now it is almost a "must buy". V 1.3 on Mac is beta but working nicely. Now the issue is mainly the nature of Bluetooth on the Mac OS X system. In spite of that the developer is hammering away.

Is definitely the best interface and functional design of any of the similar "open my Mac with my iPhone" products out there.
