Allow dynamic lock with FIDO key

Frequent Visitor

Within Windows 11 (and 10) you can configure various options to log into the system. One possibility is the usage of a physical security key. I really like this option, especially in conjunction with a FIDO key including a fingerprint sensor like the YubiKey Bio or the T2F2BIO key, which allows really password-less log in.


Unfortunately it is not possible to configure the system to automatically lock the system by removing the key. So whenever I leave the desk I have to remove the key AND lock the screen. Within windows there is an option of "dynamic lock" which can be used in conjunction with a bluetooth device to track the users presence, but it would be great if we could also use the presence of the connected FIDO key as a detector for presence of the user.
