Touch ID on MacBook for sudo
This instruction will teach you how to configure pam.d to use Touch ID on your MacBook to authenticate sudo commands. This is a quicker and more convenient way to sudo while still maintaining the security of your device.
Open the Terminal app on your MacBook and run:
sudo nano /etc/pam.d/sudo
Add pam_tid as a new auth method:
auth sufficient pam_tid.so
This is how the whole file should look like:
# sudo: auth account password session auth sufficient pam_tid.so auth sufficient pam_smartcard.so auth required pam_opendirectory.so account required pam_permit.so password required pam_deny.so session required pam_permit.so
That's it! After following these steps, you can use Touch ID to authenticate sudo commands on your MacBook.
