I work with hundreds and hundreds of people who have Windows PCs and Macs and an organizational policy to encourage screen locking– and still the locks get ignored. Fear not, dear Mac user, we, too, have many ways to do the deed.
Take a look at this free utility. It’s called Lock Me Now and gives you a bunch of options to lock down your Mac with a click to the Menubar.
Click the Menubar. Select Lock. Done. Mac screen locked.
As easy as that is to accomplish, there are plenty of options to configure in Lock Me Now so how you lock down your Mac is up to you.
Settings in Lock Me Now give you plenty of options. For example, assign keyboard shortcuts to lock down your Mac. Or, simply click the Menubar and select Lock.
Leave the room with your iPhone and Lock Me Down goes to work behind the scenes to lock your Mac. The app can be set to lock down your Mac when you disconnect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod from the Mac. There’s also an option to detect who has attempted to unlock your Mac. Or, go super simple and just set the default screensaver to Just Lock.
This clever utility is more than meets the eye, works well, is simple enough to setup, and is priced right. Free. What’s not to like?
