The Lock: Home Edition for Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7

Complete home solution for Windows access control, user monitoring and desktop security for systems running 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows 7 or later.  (will run in Windows XP, but not supported)

The Lock Home Edition is a multi-user Windows desktop utility that is designed to be a supplement to standard Windows password authentication, as well as providing user monitoring and desktop security.  The Lock provides a simple secured desktop lock, requiring a password to be entered before desktop access is granted.  This lock can present a second layer of system security as it can be configured with a password different than your Windows password. When used in this configuration, access to the environment will require a user to enter their Windows password to access the computer, and their Lock password to access the desktop.

The Lock may be configured to accept a 6 digit PIN, generated with a Google Authenticator app. Additionally, The Lock may be configured to require a combination of your Lock password + a PIN.  This configuration will provide a two factor authentication model requiring both your lock password (something you know) and the PIN generated on your phone (something you have).

The Lock Home Edition provides user logging as well as system and access time restrictions, giving the network administrator the ability to monitor user activity, specify which systems a user may log into, and the times a user may be logged in.  The Lock User Monitor App can be used to remotely monitor and restrict access to user accounts.
