Mindless Computer Security

airlockIf you’re a gadget geek, and I am, then you need this. It’s only $7.77 and it protects you and your clients.

Of course, if you don’t have a Mac and an iPhone then it really costs more like $1,507.77.

I have a Mac and and an iPhone as all good gadget geeks should. So I’ve been playing with this software and it really works.

It’s called Airlock. It’s an easy install on your Mac and your iPhone.

Once it’s set up, which takes 2 minutes, it locks down your Mac everytime you walk away from it. It’s keyed to your iPhone so it really locks up your Mac when your iPhone walks away from the Mac.

When you come back it immediately opens the Mac back up. No need to type in a password. It uses bluetooth technology to keep track of where the iPhone is. You can even instruct Airlock to run certain programs while you’re away (like backup).

You can set the range if you wish and you can set it up to use your system password in the event that you don’t have your iPhone with you.

The software really works. It’s terrific for locking down your machine when you’re away from your desk. It’s fantastic for use at home when annoying teenagers want to use your laptop for a quick does of YouTube. As the Airlock designers say “It’s Magic. Really”.
