Touch ID on MacBook is the name of Apple’s fingerprint identity sensor. It’s a form of biometric security that’s meant to be more convenient than entering a passcode or password, especially on iPhones and iPads, which we use dozens of times a day. You can register up to five fingerprints on the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, with a maximum of three fingerprints per user account.
