You might be interested in the new Knock iOS App which has been developed to allow easy access to your Mac system without you having to enter your pass code every time you return to your system.
The new Knock iOS app uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to your Mac system and is supported by Apple’s iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S smartphones.
Once installed on your smartphone and enabled the Knock iOS app allows you to simply tap on your iPhone device whilst in range of your Mac system to securely access your system and bypass the password entry option. Watch the video below to see how easy access in your Mac system can be using the new Knock iOS application.
The Knock iOS App now available to download from the Apple iTunes App Store and is priced at $3.99. The Mac system companion application which links to your iPhone is available to download directly from the official Knock website for free. Its developers explain a little more:
“You keep your iPhone with you all the time. Now you can use it as a password. You never have to open the app— just knock on your phone twice, even when it’s in your pocket, and you’re in. Using the Knock iOS App won’t drain your iPhone’s battery, even if you use it all day every day. Knock securely communicates with your Mac using Bluetooth Low Energy, a new technology that draws very little power.”
