Can't remember your password? Someday, you might not have to. A new feature in Google's Chrome OS dev channel promises to instantly unlock a user's Chromebook whenever their phone is nearby. Unfortunately, the feature doesn't actually work. The verification tool, named Easy Unlock, offers only a brief description and an unfinished setup, which ends with in futile search to pair a device. The feature simply isn't ready, which is probably why it's disabled by default -- but it's certainly a novel idea.
