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

Complete single user solution for Windows access control, including support for two factor authentication via The Lock PIN generation Windows Phone utility, or The Lock PIN generation website.

The Lock Personal Edition is a Windows desktop utility that is designed to be a supplement to standard Windows password authentication.  The Lock Personal Edition 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 other 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 also be configured to accept a 5 digit PIN, generated from The Lock PIN Generator (a mobile app for Windows phones and tablets), or the PIN Generation web app, hosted on the CCS PIN Server website. 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).
