Now you can leave your PC unattended (but not unsecured) yet still wake it up with a flick of the wrist, with help from Eusing Maze Lock. Like a screensaver or sleep setting, Maze Lock works while you're away, preventing unauthorized access until you connect the dots on a matrix in your predetermined pattern. That sounds complex and time-consuming, but it's actually quick, easy, and natural--sort of like the wrist action you probably already use to wake your sleeping computer. The difference is, Maze Lock prevented anyone else from waking it while you were away.
The principle behind Eusing Maze Lock is very simple: Trace a unique pattern using nine dots in a three-by-three grid. That's the pattern that unlocks your PC. Maze Lock's screensaver obscures your screen even as its security features lock your PC: Connect the dots on the grid to unlock it. The default unlock pattern is a basic Z, so step one was to enter our own unique pattern on the Configuration screen, which also includes a range of options for how and when Maze Lock secures various parts of your PC. We could also enter a custom text message (the default is, "Do not touch my computer!") in the Alert Text box as well as create a backup pattern. We could change the background image or use a transparent background, too, making Maze Lock a fairly versatile screensaver in its own right. With a little practice, we were mousing through our pattern almost as quickly as the random mouse-jiggle we'd graduated from, with Maze Lock's help.
While Maze Lock is almost as good as a password, it isn't a password, and we still recommend a Windows password in addition to Maze Lock. But Maze Lock is a cool way to add additional security or to keep roving eyes and fiddly fingers from mischief while you're at lunch.
