9Locker gives you a fully-customizable pattern lock screen that you can quickly install on any computer. The program works exactly as you'd expect and lets you change just about everything it does. It will help you lock down your computer just like you would your tablet or smartphone.
This is a portable program, so your antivirus program might flag it as suspicious. Our antivirus software didn't report any problems when we tested it, though. It gives your computer a pattern lock screen where you drag your mouse along a 3X3 grid until you make your preset pattern. You can set an emergency password to get into your computer the more traditional way if you like, too. The program comes with five custom backgrounds you can use on your lock screen, but you can set the background to be any image you want, a nice customization option. The program asks for your e-mail during installation, which makes setup take a little longer. However, if you give 9Locker your e-mail, it can send you an alert whenever someone tries to break into your computer. It can even activate your Webcam and take a picture of the intruder. The alarm the program uses isn't customizable, but it sounds neat. It's less of a blaring alarm and more of a funky ringtone. That adds to the already high cool factor of this security program.
9Locker gives you a unique way to lock your computer that mobile gadget fans will love. It backs up all that style with substance, too, adding another layer or two of security.
