Lock your Mac or PC from anywhere. Built for iPhone + Watch
Lock It Up is built to lock your computer from anywhere. Got up from your desk to get coffee with embarrassing cat memes on screen? No prob. Launch, lock, done.
It's really simple. It locks your computer.
Lock It Up is a cloud based tool for locking your computer. That means it works anywhere. You don't have to be on the same wifi network or even be on the same continent, since it all works through the cloud. You can use Lock It Up on your iPhone, using the app or with our shiny Notification Center Widget. On Apple Watch, we support the app as well as glances. Lock It Up runs in the background of your computer and uses barely any RAM or CPU. Lock It Up was built to not affect computer performance whatsoever.

We've gotten a few questions. Maybe this will help you too.
Why did you make this app? We built Lock It Up while working at the awesome Alley NYC co-working space in NYC. Sometimes we would leave caffeine running and our computers wouldn't lock automatically, sometimes we had private customer data on our screens, sometimes, we just were forgetful, but we always had to run all the way back to our desks to lock our computers. Why can't I use your app to unlock my computer? Unlocking would mean that we would have to store your password somewhere in someway. We're not too comfortable doing that, so we decided to take the safe approach. We may change our minds about this in the future. Why don't you use Low Energy Bluetooth? Not sure about you, but we turn off bluetooth a lot to save power. So of course, whenever we go to use one of those bluetooth apps, we were out of luck. Also, bluetooth only works to about 35 feet. If you're on a meeting on the 12th floor, you're also out of luck. Can I still use Knock or other apps to unlock? Sure! Help! My mac goes into an unresponsive black screen after I try to unlock it! This is a known bug with OS X and the login window. Here's a way to fix it: Black Login Screen on Your Mac? Here's your fix! Where did you come up with that awesome name?
