Unlock Your Mac Using Your iPhone’s Touch ID With FingerKey

A new app allows you to unlock you Mac using your iPhone 5s, 6, or 6 Plus Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The new app, called FingerKey, allows you to login to your Mac without typing in your password each time.

9to5Mac:

The app takes advantage of Apple opening up the Touch ID sensor to third-party apps for logins after previously being reserved for unlocking the device itself and authenticating App Store and iTunes purchases.

FingerKey includes the ability to unlock multiple Macs from a distance, has 256-bit AES encryption, and an iOS 8 Notification Center widget for quick access.

The developer plans support for Windows and Linux, as well as a Pattern Unlock feature to allow logging in via touchscreen gestures.

FingerKey is available for the iPhone 5s, 6, and 6 Plus for $1.99 in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
