Lynk wants to add a physical component to mobile security and theft protection


Securing your mobile experience is all about using what works for you, and lynk adds a potentially compelling option to the mix.

There are plenty of way to make your Android device more secure, but balancing usability with security is a constant problem to be dealt with. The folks behind lynk have created a physical option for tech savvy users who aren’t usually far from their phone. It’s a Bluetooth beacon capable of acting as an NFC proxy, with an app that acts as a password manager and helps you with an alarm system in case you’ve misplaced your phone. On top of all these promises, lynk claims multiple months of battery life.

It’s an impressive laundry list of things to be capable of, and if it works even half as well as the demonstration video claims this could be an enticing option for users interested in new forms of device security.
