Using this as a replacement for a password is such a bad idea.
I used an open source app that unlocks your screen when your phone is nearby using bluetooth, but I stooped using it because of the danger of someone stealing both laptop and phone.
Its fine for two factor authentication, but, as far as I can see, it is useless if you want to access a site or service using the same smartphone that the Slicklogin app runs on.
