Those of you on the Chrome OS dev channel may have noticed a new feature, or at least part of a new feature to later come, in your settings. The new feature is called “Easy Unlock” and it’s pretty darn cool, it allows the unlocking of a Chromebook just by having your phone in close proximity. The feature of course is disabled by default and requires the user to manually enable it, you can do so by clicking the link at the bottom of this article from your Chromebook.
Once you have enabled the feature and restarted your Chromebook you will receive a notification prompting you to enable the feature. The same feature settings can be seen in the latest version of Chrome settings, in both cases the feature is ultimately useless and does not work. On the brightside the Easy Unlock feature is obviously coming to Chromebooks in the near future.
