Here's a small, friendly program that you can use whenever you want to keep sensitive information private. Use it on 1 computer, or more. 1 laptop, or more. To keep information confidential, PCLok has many features you might not expect to find in a program such as this.

When you install the program, you initially setup 2 passwords. 1 for you and 1 for users. When you enter your password (you actually enter the Administrative Mode), where you set what features you want available to users on the computer. Now, if a user tries to enter your computer with a wrong password, PCLok logs all attempts in a file you can later access and view. There's even a notification of unsuccessful attempts the next time the correct password is entered...even after rebooting!

If you are a parent and want to limit the children's use or what they do on the computer, PCLok may help. With PCLok 'you' control what features (though not too many can be set without using the Maximum-Security feature), they can have access to, and what they can do 'on' the computer. So, whether you want to limit access from home, or the office, PCLok may be your answer. Check out more of its features on their Web Site.
