Install the SmartUnlock-app on your smartphone (requirement: Android or iOS)
Install the SmartUnlock-setup on your workstation (minimum requirement: Windows Vista)
After SmartUnlock has installed successfully on your system a QR-Code will display on your screen
Scan this QR-Code with the SmartUnlock-app on your smartphone. This will link your workstation and your smartphone
Enter the password for your workstation on your smartphone
There are two ways to use SmartUnlock
Simple - use the the lock button to lock your workstation and the unlock button to unlock it
Extended - activate the 'Unlock' and 'Autolock' options in your workstation settings
Autolock - uses the step counter (if this is available on your smartphone) to lock your workstation automatically
Unlock - use the spacebar on your workstation to activate your smartphone. You then have two seconds to unlock your workstation by knocking on your phone
Is it secure?
Transparent and high security is one of the most important things about SmartUnlock. In short: we use a two-layer security system. The first layer comprises our SSL connection and the other is our RSA-based security system. In more detail: the workstation part of SmartUnlock creates a public RSA-Key and shares this key over the cloud through our secured SSL connection. The SmartUnlock-app uses this public key to encrypt your password and send it through the SSL connection to your workstation.
