For a MacBook Pro mid 2014 macOS High Sierra in the System Report I just want to verify that -Auto Unlock - Supported- is telling me that it is possible for me to set up a Apple Watch and it is not telling me that it is on or setup. Correct?

According to this site:

If you see “Auto Unlock: Supported,” your Mac meets Auto Unlock hardware requirements. If not, you’re out of luck. As a rule of thumb, Mac models manufactured before 2013 cannot use Auto Unlock.

So it looks like it's telling you the Mac supports Auto Unlock. I have a 2015 MPB with Auto Unlock turned on and my system report still says 'Supported'.

  • Thank you, I looked at the link you provided and I realized under Auto Unlock: Supported it says Status - Connected.

  • I am not aware of any way my computer can Auto Unlock. I do not want my computer to Auto Unlock. How can I see what it is and turn it off. Or just turn it off?

  • I don't know if that 'Status - Connected' is for the network card or something else. I don't think it's for the Auto Unlock feature.

  • If you don't want the feature, which is different than the original question you asked, just don't enable it in Security & Privacy. If that option's not checked, it won't unlock with your Watch.
