    Hi, on my jailbroken iPhone I have this app called AppLock and it has awesome feature that lets you choose your home network and when your iPhone is in its range AppLock will not lock selected apps which it does normally. I wonder if there is any solution to have something similar on Mac, or maybe it's already there and I can't find it. It's a bit frustrating that I have to type my password every time I wake up my laptop in home

    The next version of Mac (10.12) will use your Apple watch to detect your proximity and unlock for you.

    You can also try MacID: https://macid.co

    I don't have or even want Watch, I guess I have to study programming a little bit harder and make this app happen :D
