Locking the computerÂ protects it from unauthorized use when you need to step away from the PC, and don’t want to sign out or shut down causing everything open to be closed.
Windows can use devices that are paired with your PC to help detect when youâ€™re away, and lock your PC shortly after your paired device is out of Bluetooth range. This makes it more difficult for someone to gain access to your device if you step away from your PC and forget to lock it.
Once theyâ€™re paired, take your phone with you when you walk away, and your PC will automatically lock a minute or so after youâ€™re out of Bluetooth range.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Dynamic Lock for your account in Windows 11 to automatically lock the computer when you step away from it.
