My name is Rui Rebelo.
My app/business is Umwelt, an app that you run on your Android Phone and Windows PC. When your phone is close to the PC it unlocks it. When the phone is far it locks it. Also, it warns your phone if someone closes the laptop lid when trying to steal it.
My website has a video that shows it in action (sorry, I am just a programmer, not Christopher Nolan).
The whole purpose is to help people have better/stronger passwords without the burden of typing them every time.
Unlike other solutions (e.g.: Windows Hello, Gatekeeper) it doesn’t require you to be online, a Microsoft account or special hardware that you might not have.
Please, criticize my website and evaluate my idea.
PS.: I have a couple of ideas on the background:
- use WiFi direct instead of Bluetooth (some desktop machines don’t have bluetooth)
- use the phone fingerprint reader for authentication
- integration with Windows Active Desktop
- a password/PGP/SSH manager to automate other programs and websites logins.
What do you think of them?
