A new way to lock your Mac. Just walk away.

Use your iPhone to lock and unlock your Mac automatically. When you walk away from your Mac, it will be automatically locked. Once you approach your workplace, Near Lock will unlock your Mac.

I’ve been using the app all morning, and it has worked flawlessly! - MacTrast
Near Lock experience is great, I just take iPhone with me and leave while my Mac automatically locks. - Appinn
If you are worried that just being able to walk up to your Mac with your iPhone is a little insecure then the iOS app can be setup to require Touch ID authentication before it will unlock, which is a nice but still convenient way of accessing your Mac. - UKMac.net
If you have an iPhone 5S or newer you can even use your iPhone’s Touch ID to unlock your Mac. Using your own fingerprint to unlock your computer? Doesn’t get much more secure than that. - Guiding Tech
