I'd like to log in to my MacBook Pro using my fingerprint more. If I don't use it for a while I have to re-enter the password. Is this timeout configurable?

Running macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, on a MacBook Pro, 2016.


No configuration option exists to change the 48 hour requirement (that I’ve seen) but you should not be locked out sooner than that unless you are resting another finger on the sensor or a co-worker is pranking you.

Assuming you aren’t getting 48 hours, I’d be curious the count / settings you could dump using bioutil and perhaps purging all the fingers and setting them up again.
