HOW TO LOCK AND UNLOCK YOUR PC WITH USB DRIVE

Do you know that you can lock and unlock your PC with a USB drive so anyone who attempts to access your computer without the USB flash drive will be hit with “Access Denied” message. To get started, follow this steps below:

Step 1: Download and install Predator.
Step 2: launch the predator app, plug in your USB flash drive. Don’t worry 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. So 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.
