KeyboardLocker disables the keyboard while leaving the mouse active. An exit phrase must be entered before the keyboard is reactivated.
KeyboardLocker can be used
- to secure dedicated servers (such as university print servers)
- to prevent both USB and PS/2 keyboard input on Internet and Photo kiosks
- to protect running processes when the keyboard is cleaned by janitors
- to stop keyboard input when desktop macros are running
- in a home user environment, e.g. to show a DVD to a small child without them destroying your computer.
You can start KeyboardLocker INSTANTLY with Ctrl+Alt+L, and start KeyboardLocker automatically as your computer boots (by copying the KeyboardLocker short cut into the StartUp folder).
- Protect print servers from student use or improper use – while still allowing mouse interaction
- Show a DVD without allowing it to be stopped
- Show a presentation or demo without allowing it to be stopped
How to use KeyboardLocker
KeyboardLocker features two startup modes
- A configuration mode, where the unlock phrase can be entered. Note - in the Evaluation version you cannot change the unlock phrase - it is set to 'buyme'. Access this via the Configure KeyboardLocker start menu item.
- An instant start mode, where the unlock phrase cannot be entered. The only way to regain control of your machine is to type the unlock phrase. While locked, you can still use your mouse to start a DVD playing. The instant start mode can be useful to run when a machine starts up - to provide protection straight away. Access this via the Start KeyboardLocker start menu item.
