Those of us who have a personal computer in a public place (like office or school) are often stuck with the problem of ownership when you are away from your workplace. Some people just think its a «common thing anybody can use». Others even acknowledge that you are the owner, but they «only need one small file ». Additionally, you can never deny the possibility of the unauthorized or malicious access. Should you turn off the computer even if you plan to be absent only for 5 minutes? Absolutely not! Instead, you should try ActiveScreenLock, a graceful and unobtrusive access locker.
Here is how it works. When you plan to leave your work place, you are just ONE CLICK from having your computer locked just click on the ActiveScreenLock icon in the tray, and youll have the computer «locked» (of course, you also have the «lock computer after X minutes idle» option).
Having computer locked means nobody can use it, as well nobody can see whats on your desktop (because just glancing at your last opened document could be a treat) people around the computer can see just the black screen and the password prompt.
Additionally, ActiveScreenLock provides some ways of making the locked screen friendlier: you can set a screen background picture, away message, and even let visitors leave text messages for you (instead of the old-school sticky notes all over the desk).
