      This is even more fun if you pair your PC with bluetooth hybrid smartwatch :). Just get up from your chair and it gets locked :). I love the functionality, but it’s been here from some time already – at least from 1709…

      Ok so if I set up the pairing, can we login or unlock the PC if the phone is not available?

        1. You can pair the phone only for locking, not unlocking.
