With passwords entered in your phone, simply walk near your computer and everything will automatically log in - apparently. Excalibur has just seen an Android release and in an email to us they explained exactly how this interesting application works.



With browser support limited to Firefox and Chrome, this app allows you to store multiple passwords in its secure memory. When paired with your computer, this app will automatically log you in or out of your computer and websites depending on range. As you can see in the video above, simply placing your phone next to the PC will see it log in, walking away will see everything log out.


This free app requires a specific authentication process to make sure people can't steal your precious data - if you're looking for a more in depth explanation as to how this is achieved, head to this blog post.


This technology looks great, do you trust it?
