Tech Friday: MacOS Catalina security issue or a “me” issue?

Posted By on October 23, 2020


My iMac computer running macOS Catalina has been off for several days using the “shut down” command before leaving town (normally just let it “sleep”). Upon return, it was booted up and opened without requesting a login or password to unlock – highly unusual and a security issue?

I’ve never had this happen before and will have to research to see if this has happened to others?  In any case, it would not be the kind of thing shared office space workers would want to have happen.
