Windows Dynamic Lock is a feature starting with Windows 10 that protects your data by recognizing when you are near your computer and when you are away.
It pairs itself with your mobile phone and recognizes the distance at which you are located through a running Bluetooth connection. If your mobile phone goes beyond a distance of 2 meters from the computer, the PC automatically locks.
