Sentry Editor's Review
When you are away from your computer, to most users its important to make sure no one uses or accesses your computer and changes how you left it. Its even more important to make sure no one views your private files, emails, instant messenger conversation logs and so on without your permission. Sentry helps to locks down your computer when you are away from it so that all unauthorized access and use is prevented. Whilst Sentry is enabled, all access to your system is denied, so you can go to make yourself a coffee with peace of mind. Its pretty easy to use, and much more customizable that the built in Windows solution.
One thing that I liked about Sentry is that it doesn’t totally replace your screensaver, which is a great thing for users who spend a lot of time online looking for wallpapers, themes and screen savers to personalize their systems with. Yes, it’s an alternative to the Windows Lock Screen, but you can still keep your screen saver if you so desire.This can be setup in the preferences. As well as this, unlike some screen locking software that I’ve seen, you can further personalize the lock screen. For example, you can change the screen layout to one of many preset options, or even totally recode a layout if you’re any good with HTML - totally different to the standard Windows Lock Screen. Something else I thought was really interesting was the four different unlock methods. Users can unlock their computers with either just a password, a user name and password, using a pin code, or even using a USB memory stick or removable drive which contains a KeyFile.
If someone wants to get hold of you whilst you are away from your computer, they can easily leave a message for you, using the interactive lock screen. Sentry provides a space for them to leave their name and message, and presents the message to you, only once you have unlocked your computer.
Sentry can be launched quickly from either the system tray icon, double clicking the Sentry desktop shortcut, using the customizable Sentry launch hotkey, or by your system being idle for a certain amount of time which can be specified. Sentry can also run automatically at startup so that you could leave your computer booting up unattended, and have it automatically lock itself
Sentry overall is a great program for computer users in various environments. I could see Sentry being used on computers and laptops in working environments and homes. It could quite easily be used by anyone working at a PC who has to step outside quickly to take a phone call, or maybe by a parent who goes to answer the door and doesn’t want their children fiddling with their laptop whilst their gone. Its really customizable if you have the time for tweaking and messing around with the options, and provides nearly all the features I've seen in other screen locking software. For what you’re getting, the price isn't too bad either. I’d rate Sentry 4.5/5
Sentry Publisher's Description
Sentry locks down your computer on demand so it stays secure when you aren't using it. No other programs can be opened, no browser history can be snooped at, and nobody will be touching your files while you're gone. Sentry can even take messages from people who dropped by your workstation while you were away. You can customize the appearance of your screen while Sentry is running, and have your favorite screen savers run within the program. Sentry can launch from a system tray icon, a global hotkey, or after your computer has been idle (no keyboard/mouse input) for a certain amount of time. The Sentry2Go feature lets you copy the program to removable media such as a floppy disk, USB flash drive, or CD-rom, allowing you to quickly lock any public workstation you may be using. Sentry is ideal for people in workplaces who may have to leave their system unexpectedly and don't want co-workers to snoop around in their files. It's also useful for teachers, parents, etc, who don\'t want the kids messing with their computer if it's left on.
