Unlock your Mac with just your fingerprint.™



Harnessing Touch ID on iOS, MacID is a fast, secure way to unlock your Mac without the inconvenience of typing your password over and over.

Packed full of features, including innovative Tap to Unlock and full iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch support. Control audio, share clipboards and start screensavers.

MacID offers automatic locking when you’re away from your Mac, and multiple ways to unlock, including automatically when you return to your Mac with Proximity Wake.

No other unlocking app gives you so much choice, and MacID will never connect to the internet without your consent, for your peace of mind.

MacID for Apple Watch

MacID was created with Apple Watch in mind, long before it was even available.

MacID for Apple Watch is fast, beautiful, and best of all functional. Just like MacID for iOS, MacID for Apple Watch allows you to lock and unlock multiple Macs, control iTunes & Spotify, and even start screensavers – right from your wrist.

Add the MacID Glance near the start of your Glances for super quick access and a quick look at how many Macs you have connected.
