Microsoft works on a team lock if the user is not there

The company founded by Bill Gates is working on a functionality that allows the automatic equipment to be blocked if the person is not present

Microsoft is working on a presence detection feature for Windows 11, which is capable of identifying if the user is “present, absent, or not interacting” with the device and, in the event of the user’s absence, blocking it and ensuring its security.

The technology company continually develops new tools focused on improving the security and protection of devices, as well as the data stored on these devices.

In this sense, Microsoft is testing a new privacy-focused feature referred to as the Human Presence Sensor, which is based on using a series of sensors that identify whether a user is using the device.

As detailed by Microsoft on the Microsoft Build page, the feature detects whether a user is “present, absent, or not interacting with their device.” Based on this, it allows the device to execute actions such as automatically block itself in order to achieve greater protection, but also greater responsiveness and improved performance.

Thus, when the computer detects that it is “unattended” by the user because it does not identify its presence, it can be automatically blocked to “protect confidential files and other information.”

Another use for this feature is to improve performance with battery life. If your computer freezes every time you no longer sense the user’s presence, you can conserve battery by reducing unnecessary screen idle time.
