Microsoft has quietly pushed out an app on the Windows Store called the Phone Sign-in Beta. The app will allow a user to unlock a PC without the need to type in a password, but by just tapping on the PC in the app.

The app that was spotted by twitter user
@h0x0d on the Windows Store , and can be downloaded by any device running Windows 10 Mobile and will connect via Bluetooth to unlock a PC as well.

It works like a two step-authentication process, letting you use a personal device (that hopefully has a password) to unlock a known PC, that was previously paired using the app.

All the user needs to do is to tap on the PC in the app and the PC unlocks, reducing the need to type in a password or even smile at the camera using Windows Hello.

According to the description, Microsoft’s intended use for this app and authentication procedure is for office purposes. Also, the description for the app tell us that the company plans to add some more features like support for Microsoft accounts, a sign-in solution for browsers and VPN, one-time pass-code generation, and MFA approval through notifications.

Indeed, signing in directly into your account on your home PC would also make this app really handy especially if you have a long password to remember and type down.

Meanwhile, Facebook Messenger beta for Windows 10 is spotted in Windows Store but there is no confirmation about its availability, reports Windowsblogitalia.com,
via PC-Tablet. The app is said to be only available for PC and tablet devices with no word on the smartphone version. The site has also posted screenshots and a leaked video demonstrating the main features of the new app. Facebook Messenger Beta version is being tested with select people and will be released before the end of March.
