Tether Apple Security App

Most avid fans of Apple devices likely have both an iPhone and a Macbook that they use virtually every day.

The folks at Apple have done quite a bit to make their devices work together quite seamlessly.

But many users may not know that they can tether them together, so that your iPhone will lock your laptop when you step away and unlock it when you return.

This useful and easy security feature is available from an app called ‘Tether'.

Simply load Tether on your smartphone and Macbook, to automatically make this happen.

There’s no need to worry about the Tether app draining the battery on your iPhone to make this magic possible because it makes use of 'Bluetooth Smart' which is a very low energy technology.

Anyone working in an open environment that wants to control those snooping eyes will find this to be one of the best tips I’ve ever provided.
