Windows 10 plans to lock your PC when you move away from it
Microsoft is all set to get a new feature for Windows 10 called Dynamic Lock which will attempt to detect when you are no longer present in front of your PC and automatically lock the device for extra security. Although this feature is referred to as Dynamic Lock in build 15002, internally it was referred to as Windows Goodbye, which is more appropriate for the feature it is intending to deliver.
This feature will be more beneficial for those who deals with sensitive information in an enterprise on a regular basis. In case you forget to manually lock your device, Windows will be able to do it for you with Dynamic Lock.
But the process or the technology behind it to determine if you’re no longer present at your device is unknown as of now. It is possible the company could use Windows Hello-compatible machines or detect idle activity and lock the machine accordingly.
Dynamic Lock won’t lock your PC immediately after you’ve stepped away and thus the inconvenience it might cause in future is already covered up. Microsoft currently uses special Windows Hello cameras to let Windows 10 users log into a PC with just their face. They are planning to deliver Dynamic Lock as part of the Windows 10 from the month of April.
