You can purchase apps and games from the Mac App Store with one touch thanks to the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro.

Thanks to Touch ID on the 2016 MacBook Pro, you can use your fingerprint to make Mac App Store purchases and access content requiring your Apple ID password. Not only does it make it easier to quickly download apps and games you want, but it also means you can create a long, complex Apple ID password without worrying about how often you'll have to enter it.

When it comes to passwords we know we'll be using regularly, it might be tempting to create something simple, easy to remember, and short.
