USB Raptor 0.0.0.44 Beta
Block access to the PC using a USB drive
Configuring the application is not difficult at all, since all the options are clear and accessible. The USB flash drive must be connected to the computer for USB Raptor to identify the USB key serial number.
You start by assigning a password to the USB device and creating a lock file that will be stored on the removable drive. Each time a flash drive is connected to the computer, USB Raptor will search for this key in order to unlock the PC.
Allows multiple unlocking methods
There are two lock modes that you can choose from, namely 'System lock' and 'USB Raptor lock'. You can instruct the application to use a random color for the lock screen and periodically change it, mute the PC volume during lockdown and add a 5 seconds delay to cancel the task during this time interval.
Unlocking the computer is automatically done when you insert the correct USB flash drive, provided USB Raptor is armed. Alternatively, you can configure the application to allow unlocking with a master key, by sending a valid network unlocking message to your computer or by entering the previously set password on the lock screen.
Password-protect your PC and block access to files
With the help of USB Raptor your USB flash drive can become a security key for your computer, not allowing access to files while you are away. To avoid accidental lockdowns, it also offers alternative unlocking methods.
For security reasons, the access to the USB Raptor's interface can also be password-protected, in order to prevent others from modifying your password or settings.
