Much Needed App

I had been using my Apple Watch to unlock my MacBook Pro at work, but after I swapped it out for a 2012 MacMini, that was no longer an option. Along came Unlock to save my life! Although the documentation is a bit rough, the app itself has worked great and the developer has been extremely responsive. It's wonderful to simply leave my desk and have the Mac lock quickly and reliably and then to return and have it unlock just as fast.

Great app and excellent support

I don’t have an Apple Watch so I love having this functionality paired with my phone (I also purchased the iPhone companion app). Super easy and works effortlessly. Had a small issue and the developer turned around a fix almost immediately. 10/10 would buy again.

FAILS to lock when leaving range, or even turning OFF Bluetooth entirely

I had high hopes for this app, but unfortunately realized after 20 minutes of testing, that this app would NOT lock the computer when I stepped out of range. In fact, I tested with turning on my phone and watch's Bluetooth entirely: it still failed.

Refund requested.

Sounds like you have some other Bluetooth LE device nearby and that got registered. Make sure that the only device that is in proximity while registering, is the one you intend. After you figure that out, it’s really reliable. If you have questions there is an option to talk to me in the menu.
