Security is hugely important when it comes to one's devices, and Unlox is a newly improved app that lets users unlock their laptop or desktop using their biometric information. The app provides a control system for locking and unlocking one's device directly through their iOS device (i.e. their iPhone or Apple Watch) using their fingerprint, wrist, or face.

Passwords are highly secure if they're made using the standard strength principals like length and variance of letters, numbers, and symbols, but there's also no question that passwords can get annoying to continually input and to remember. Biometrics are automatically as secure, since biometric information is by definition unique to the owner of that trait. Unlox is thus a convenient way to keep one's Mac computer secure.
