USB Desktop Lock1.1
USB Desktop Lock is a lightweight Windows application designed with a single goal in mind: to help you lock your screen using a USB flash drive without having to set up passwords.
It comes in handy in case you share your computer with other users and want to make sure no one has access to your sensitive information while you are away.
The layout is quite plain and allows you to perform most operations with minimum effort.
USB Desktop Lock gives you the possibility to select the flash drive that is used for the blocking process.
As soon as you select the desired USB device, the application automatically scans and validates the USB device at a certain time. In case it doesn’t detect any USB, it automatically locks your screen.
In order to unlock your desktop, you are required to plug in your USB device. Last but not least, the program hides all your open windows and tabs, and blocks access to the Task Manager.
Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to configure the dedicated parameters, even rookies can master the entire process with just a few clicks.
During our testing we have noticed that USB Desktop Lock carries out a task very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. However, it eats up CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.
To sum things up, USB Desktop Lock proves to be a simple-to-use application that helps you lock your screen using a USB flash drive. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
