WinLockr Review

Felix Cheng
Locks your PC when you're away to keep from prying eyes from accessing private data or messing around
A review of WinLockr by Felix Cheng

Shared PCs, friends over, kids messing about and other things can put your personal security at risk if they're given full access to your PC. That's when a privacy protection program which can lock your PC when you're away comes in handy and that's exactly what WinLockr does.

The first step when using WinLockr is for you to set a password. Whether or not its running as a portable application from a USB stick or from your system. Once your system is locked, you will be required to enter the password in order to access your desktop again.

While the system is locked, you may only use the keyboard to enter a password for locking and unlocking. If you enter the password incorrectly too many times (as defined by you), the attempts will be recorded and the system may beep or shutdown. You can also have WinLockr disallow others from shutting down your system.

Features and highlights
  • Lock your computer so that other users can't enter without your password
  • USB-Unlock: Unlock Windows by simply inserting your USB flash drive to your computer
  • Mouse/Keyboard blocking: WinLockr will block the mouse and keyboard except the keys that you need to enter your password
  • Shutdown Prevention: Every shutdown/restart/log off actions will also be blocked
  • Full Screen Lock: Hides the Windows interface so other Users can't see what you were doing on your computer
