DisplayLink Manager 1.5 Beta introduces experimental support for Apple Watch unlock with docking stations featuring DisplayLink technology.
You can enable this feature via the DisplayLink Manager app:
- Click DisplayLink Manager icon in the menu bar
- Enable option "Use Apple Watch to unlock on login screen"
Unlocking your MacBook with an Apple Watch is a feature developed by Apple, not by Synaptics.
Please note that this feature is not compatible with screensavers. To use Apple Watch unlock with your DisplayLink docking station or graphics adapter, you must disable your screensaver so your monitor goes to sleep/power save mode instead of staying on.
