Is there a way to stop the notification and sound on my apple watch when it unlocks my mac?
Mute the Watch
But I want to receive notifications- that's what I bought the watch for in the first place! Unlocking my Mac though, I can see that it's unlocked by looking at the computer. That my watch also has to notify me as well is kind of idiotic.
Agree with this... I open my laptop and it shows that it is unlocking with the Apple Watch and then it unlocks - no need to also notify my watch. I guess this never bothered me because I have never had sounds enabled on the watch, so I feel the vibration and nothing else.
I think it's probably a bit of added security since it's possible you could be in range for someone else to unlock your mac without your permission.
In practice it's probably not necessary - it is so precise in locating the watch that I have to make sure to hold my wrist near the keyboard to make sure it unlocks for me. But I'm sure with security they'd rather be a bit extra careful.
it's annoying but not that much
I have my iMac upstairs and use screens on my iPad downstairs to control it. Upon connecting where I usually have to input my password my watch actually unlocked it. I could not reproduce it but I know it's not supposed to work from that distance. I even got a notification on my watch. And I too have to be close with my arm when I'm at the mac. But this is why the notification is there. But I'd like a way to turn if off.
