Howdy.

Right now, if Safari/Keychain doesn't autofill a password, I go to the Keychain app like normal and look up the password. However, I have to type in the password for my Mac each time to access the Keychain password. Is there any way to make it so that TouchID unlocks my Keychain?

Thanks.

If you look up the password in the Safari preferences you should be able to use Touch ID.

Thank you so much, you are correct. I had no idea I could access passwords from the Safari preferences. I wonder why this feature isn't in the Keychain app... Nevertheless, THANK YOU so much. You have saved me a lot of headache.
