Require Password to Wake / Unlock can be disabled without password
|Product:||Mac OS X
Even when Security settings in System Preferences are locked, the “Require Password to Wake / Unlock” is is freely settable. While arguably convenient when a matter of enabling the setting, this should not be unsettable without being prompted for a password once enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open System Preferences
2. open Security settings
3. enable “Require Password to Wake / Unlock”
4. lock Security settings
Checkbox gets disabled until Security settings are unlocked.
Checkbox is still enabled.
Access via the Security Preferences suite of System Events in AppleScript does trigger a SecurityAgent prompt, but this can be dismissed without affecting the result above.
