The software uses an encrypted password to protect you, and blocks most common RISC OS
tricks to bypass - (eg. no F12, Alt-break, iconbar etc). Whilst no system should ever
claim to be completely secure, we've managed to lock ourselves out of a few times
The software was created with three uses in mind - firstly to protect the ARMbook laptop,
which might be left lying around; secondly to protect unattended servers;
and thirdly with an eye on GDPR compliance.
GDPR states that anyone handling personal information (eg. names and addresses) for any
business, club, church or other organisation should keep said information protected.
Requiring a password to access is one basic element of GDPR compliance that applies
to many of us!
With this in mind, we'd like to recommend LockScreen to anyone who uses RISC OS to stor
names, addresses or any other private info. Or, indeed, your *own* private data.
Note that by design, LockScreen makes no reference to RISC OS, R-Comp or any other
tell-tale sign when in use. It doesn't even mention its own name.
This is to make it difficult for anyone to identify what they are facing when they
encounter the software.
Still not sure? Download the manual to find out more (note, the software may have gained more features since this copy of the manual was last updated) - always best to check on !Store.
