How To Lock and Unlock your Computer With A USB Drive

There are ways now that you can lock and unlock your personal computer with USB drive. Since technology is now gaining grounds. So there are vital ways that you can lock your laptop or desk up with a USB drive. See details below


Step 1: Download and install Predator.


Step 2: Once Predator launches, plug in your USB flash drive. None of the contents of the drive will be deleted or altered in any way, so feel free to use your primary thumbdrive.


When you insert the drive, a dialog box will appear asking you to create a password. Click OK to continue.


Step 3: In the Preferences window, take note of a few key settings. First, enter a secure, unique password in the “New password” field. If you lose your USB drive, you’ll use it to unlock your computer.


If you’d like, you can check the Always Required box and you’ll be asked to enter the password each time you use your thumbdrive to unlock your PC.


Finally, in the section under Flash Drives, ensure that the correct USB flash drive is selected. When you’re done, click “Create key” and then OK.


Step 4: Predator will exit. When it does, click the Predator icon in the taskbar to restart the program. A few seconds later, the icon will turn green, alerting you that Predator is running.


Every 30 seconds, Predator will check to see that your USB drive is plugged in. If it isn’t, your computer will dim and lock down.
