Remember when you got that coffee and came back to find somebody else using your computer? Protected Screen is the solution.
Protected Screen works by putting a virtual cloak over your screen. This cloak cannot be removed without a password which is set during the setup. Since Protected Screen doesn't use your login password, people in your workspace who know your login won't be able to damage an important document. Since Protected Screen uses a cloak, it enables critical background operations to continue unaffected. This means that if you are burning a disc, copying a file etc, your operation can run smoothly in the background.

We have designed Protected Screen with three goals. Speed, Security and Simplicity. Your screen will be instantly protected once you open the protected screen application. Adding Protected Screen to your dock ensures security which is one click away.

Even if your important banking details are on the screen, you can be safe in knowing that the cloak completely covers your screen and protects sensitive information.
