  1. Setting up Touch ID on MacBook Pro

    I just bought a MacBook Pro. I enabled Touch ID when I initially set up the computer. I restored from the clone backup of my old computer (same OS-Sierra) but I guess because the old one didn't have Touch ID, it overwrote that, or whatever. In any case, it's no longer set up. Now I want to set it up again and I'm running into a problem. It tells me auto login must be turned off (which it is, I log in with a password or my Apple Watch). I Googled around and if I understand what I'm finding, I have to turn off Filevault first. Is decrypting my files (temporarily) a big deal? (ie does it take a long time?). I don't know what it entails. And then of course, when I'm done, I'd have to turn Filevault back on and encrypt them again. Has anyone been through this before? Thanks Robin
