Pheonix Freeze: Empowering Lazy-Ass Computer Users All Over the World.

by Lambert Varias

Currently in beta, Phoenix Freeze is a program that allows users to use thie Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones as “keys” to their computers. After pairing your computer with your phone, Phoenix Freeze will automatically lock the computer as you go away from the computer, and it will unlock the computer as you go nearer. That is of course assuming that you have your phone with you.

And that’s why I’m not impressed by the software. First of all, just how hard is it to manually log out or lock your computer? If you have sensitive data then it should be worth the ” annoying effort required to constantly lock and unlock your PC with passwords or finger swipes.” Second, if you want to protect your data, why give potential thieves another way to steal it? If your phone is stolen then your data’s security is also compromised.

In a way, it’s cool because it’s like your computer can detect your presence. Unfortunately it’s just like that, but not really. If you have sensitive data then by all means take measures to protect it. Make a hard-to-guess password and don’t give it away. If you want to check out Phoenix Freeze, you can download a trial version on Phoenix Technologies’ website. Just make sure your phone doesn’t get lost or stolen.
