    It is a great feature. And no one here has the slightest idea.

    idk why they even removed it in the first place it was a awesome feature that made unlocking your mac more faster and convenient.

    This is a beta program. Perhaps the feature broke unintentionally (hence why you should report it, so they know) or perhaps they disabled the code to test something else. I’m reasonably sure it will be back at some point.

    Think I misunderstood what this was in other thread, its related to the unlock your Mac feature in macOS but adds something? I missed it.

    This is what I was referring to, which was always worked fine here:

    Using iOS 11 beta 3 and watchOS 4 beta 3, macOS Sierra

    High Sierra Beta 3 + Watch OS 4 beta 3

    For you and that’s good. That doesn’t mean it does for others, though.

    Sorry, are You an Developer or did you use The Beta „just for fun“ ?

    Simply re-aktivate the Unlock with Watch Feature in Settings.

    Its in your Mac settings. I don't recall there ever being a setting for this on the Watch itself.

    Yes I've never seen this anywhere but in MacOS which is why I was confused. Maybe you could link to an article about it, or discussion if its a new beta feature on watch.

    Yes I am 99.999% sure it's not but was trying to be polite ;) it seems like such an obvious point that was hard to believe the claim about a watch option.

    Sorry. Was not trying to be abrupt. I was in more or less the same place you were.

    I haven't been paying much attention, but this is back to working in the latest builds/GM right?

    Yes it is! Worked great this morning, let's hope it still does when I get home.
    Cause on Watchos3 I never had it working stabily.
