XUS PC Lock 4.2.0
An easy to use and quick to enable method of locking your computer with a lock pattern, thus preventing unsanctioned usage of your PC
XUS PC Lock is a user-friendly and reliable software utility functioning as a desktop locker, in the purpose of protecting your screen and your data from unauthorized access.
The program is quite simple to handle, meaning that even if you have never worked with a similar tool, you will quickly figure out how to use it to protect your computer. It runs minimized in the system tray, so it can be at your disposal whenever you want.
Upon the first launch, you will be prompted to change the default 'Lock Pattern', thus not permitting other people from using it. You can select a '9 Points', '16 Points' or '25 Points' pattern, whichever you feel would best protect you.
Afterward, you can press the 'Reset Pattern' button and the application's window will clear, allowing you to set the 'Lock Pattern' you want. You can do this by dragging your mouse cursor over the points you want to include. However, you cannot go over the same point twice.
You can create any shape you want in order to generate the safest 'Lock Pattern' you can think of. It is advisable to also create a backup of the pattern, in case you forget it, which is exported in the form of a BMP image, in a folder of your choice, so you can quickly access it and remember what is was.
Other options include the ability to automatically lock Windows at startup, turn off your PC after a user-defined amount of time or set up an alarm when the pattern is entered incorrectly for a number of times, displaying a message for the person attempting to access your machine.
In conclusion, XUS PC Lock is an efficient and intuitive application that you can use to prevent people from accessing your computer without your consent or knowledge, by implementing a customizable 'Lock Pattern' as a defense measure.
