Lock Your PC Using Bluetooth Of Your Mobile Device With BtProx [Free]



We use many lockers to lock our PC to protect our private data and content but here is a unique and a totally different approach to lock your computer  – With Your Mobile Device &  it’s totally Free.

BtProx is a free application that uses bluetooth technology of your cell phone to lock your computer. It monitors the proximity of your computer to your cellphone or other Bluetooth device.

It will lock off your computer automatically, protecting its contents from prying eyes when the phone goes out of range which means when you walk away from your computer talking your phone with you. Obviously, you would take your cellphone you when you leave, wouldn’t you? It will also unlock automatically when you return back, with your cellphone or other bluetooth device of course.
