Simply put Sesame in your pocket and walk away. Once you are out of range, your Mac will lock and nobody will be able to access your sensitive files. When you come back, the Sesame app will sense the Sesame key fob and unlock your screen, ready for you to continue your work.

This is a good application. I like to lock up my Mac when I am in a bad place

Why not just connect it to your phone with Bluetooth and use that as the proximity sensor instead of requiring the Sesame keyfob as additional hardware?
