Tether App Unlocks Your Mac When You're Nearby, Locks It When You Leave

Tether is an app for your iPhone that can unlock your Mac when you're nearby and lock it when you leave.

With Tether, your Mac automatically locks when you're not there and springs back to life when you return. It's that simple!

To use the feature you'll need to install the iOS app on your iPhone and install the companion app on your Mac. You download the OS X app from here.

Features:
● Secure Your Privacy:
You have your iPhone with you all the time. We thought to utilise this behaviour a.k.a 'iPhone separation anxiety' to automatically ensure your Mac's digital files and private data are kept safe whenever you’re called away.

● Improve Your Workflow:
As soon as you return, Tether will automatically enter your password and unlock your Mac allowing you to continue from where you left off. No password entry, just rock on up and you're in!

● No Battery Drain
Tether communicates seamlessly between iPhone and Mac using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) which draws very little power. Which means using Tether all day won’t drain your battery.

Compatibility:
iMac - Late 2012 or newer
MacBook Pro - Mid 2012 or newer
MacBook Air - Mid 2011 or newer
Mac Mini - Mid 2011 or newer
Mac Pro - Late 2013 or newer

You can download Tether from the App Store for free. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments!

Well it's a good idea that will be 100x better if they develop it for the new Apple Watch.
