Windows 10 supports multiple options for keeping your PC secure. You have Five types of passwords that you can set; alphanumeric, PIN, Picture and Fingerprint.

Four ways to Lock windows 10

The Creators Update for Windows 10 will introduce a new locking mechanism for your PC. Dynamic Lock. It’s meant for users who forget to lock their device and it works with paired Bluetooth devices. When a paired Bluetooth device, specifically a phone, is no longer nearby, Windows locks itself after 30 seconds.

There are Two Steps to Enable Dynamic Lock in Windows 10.

Step 1: Pair Your Phone

Before you enable Dynamic Lock, you must first pair your mobile phone with your PC. You can skip down to step 2 if that’s already done. How to Connect your phone with Windows 10

  1. On your PC, go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices.
  2. Turn on Bluetooth with the toggle switch there. (Turn on your phone’s Bluetooth as well).
  3. Next, tap the “+” button for Add Bluetooth or other device.
  4. In the pop-up Add a device window, tap Bluetooth, then choose your device from the list that appears.
  5. Prompts should appear on both your PC and phone. Accept them to pair.

In my case, my iPhone wasn’t listed after the laptop scanned for Bluetooth devices (it saw only my Apple TV). Updating my laptop’s Bluetooth driver, however, fixed the problem.

To update your PC’s Bluetooth driver:

  • Open the Device Manager (press the Start button and type in “Device Manager”), then click to expand the Bluetooth line.
  • Next, right-click on the first Bluetooth item listed (mine says Bluetooth USB Module), tap Update driver and then choose Search automatically for updated driver software.

Step 2: Activate Dynamic Lock

With your PC and phone paired:

  1. Go to Settings > Accounts and then tap Sign-in options in the left panel.
  2. Scroll way down to the Dynamic Lock section and check the box for Allow Windows to detect when you’re away and automatically lock the device.
  3. That’s it!

Dynamic Lock in action

Just know that Dynamic Lock isn’t a foolproof security mechanism for these three reasons (at least as of today):

  1. Your PC stays unlocked until you walk out of Bluetooth range
  2. Your PC still stays unlocked for 30 seconds after that
  3. If someone hops onto your PC while it’s unlocked, Dynamic Lock won’t engage at all

When I walked to the other side of my house, put my phone down and returned to my PC, I didn’t see the lock screen even by the time I sat down — but just before I started muttering nasty things about Bluetooth and betas, the PC suddenly locked.

If you regularly lock your PC when you leave your desk, then perhaps Dynamic Lock can be useful as a safety net, kicking in to lock your PC should you forget, perhaps when you run out of your office after receiving an email about free pizza in the conference room.
