I found the solution! This was a user I created after the factory reset and therefore was created on High Sierra. macOS High Sierra has a bug around the user 501 which is the very first user you create after login: https://medium.com/@ambroselittle/cant-delete-original-admin-user-on-macos-high-sierra-1d79fb438246 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/...

Personal Hotspot being "on" while connecting the USB (tethering) seems to be the issue. Turn it off, connect the cable and turn it back on if required.

For some reason my system time was set to about 10 days earlier, likely when my system went into battery very low sleep mode. My solution was to goto System Preferences | Date & Time, click lock, enter my admin password, and the time then auto-updated to be current and problem solved.

You are likely correct. If you get a UI that says that the system is "Pasting from [my MacBook's Name]", then this likely means that the application in the foreground of your iPhone is reading from the universal clipboard.

There are other files in that directory that are named <UUID>.plist, where UUID is the value of the GeneratedUID key in the user record. You can see this value with this command: dscl . ...

It's not really meaningful to provide a blanket "yes" or "no" answer. Instead, let's look at some scenarios. Unsophisticated attacker -- probably no. If there is a recent high-risk security problem and you have not yet installed the latest OS update, mmmmaybe. Limited physical access -- probably no. If you let the attacker out of your sight even briefly, ...

Just try to delete that specific item you want to check or uncheck and then add it back again.
