Lock Your Computer With Secure My Screen

There are several tools and methods to protect a computer from unauthorized access under a working environment. I had mentioned many of them in previous posts. Here is another simple to use, but very efficient tool called Secure My Screen that secures your computer and ensures that nobody else can use it whilst you are away. Read below to know how to set up and use Secure My Screen on your system.

As it name indicate, Secure My Screen lets you lock your computer screen with a password and username. Once secured, your monitor can only be unlocked by entering the correct username and password. Restarting the system just lock it again.


Using Secure My Screen is simple. Install the application. You will need to register for a free product key to use the password permanently. Then input a username and password to lock/unlock the PC.


After then, run the application and input username and password. To lock your computer, click “Lock Computer” button. To unlock the computer requires the same username and password.

By clicking “Edit account details” button, you can edit your details and can also change screen and text color. You can setup an additional password for trusted users, which will give them access without you needing to reveal your personal password.

Secure My Screen can be downloaded free from developer's site here.
