Tap Lock allows an Android device to lock and unlock a PC using Bluetooth. Locking and unlocking can be accomplished using NFC tags, a widget, or other apps such as Tasker or NFC Task Launcher.
Tap Lock requires the Tap Lock Server to be installed and running on a bluetooth enabled PC, such as a laptop. The Tap Lock Server is included with this app along with instructions to set it up.
Locking and unlocking the PC is performed using authenticated requests sent over bluetooth, using a passphrase which can be set from the app.
Currently, Gnome Desktop on Linux and Windows 7 64 bit are tested, though Vista and 32 bit variations should work as well.
