Desktop Lock is an iPhone application that will allow you to remotely lock your Mac or Windows desktops. It works in conjunction with a small application that runs on the desktop. For Mac users, the computer is locked using Fast User Switching, effectively suspending the current user. For Windows users, the computer is locked using the standard lock workstation function.



OSX 10.6 or greater with Fast User Switching enabled.

Once the desktop application is installed, open the desktop application and set a 4 digit numeric pin. You can install the desktop app on as many computers as you like.

Now, from the main screen simply tap the desktop in the list, or tap the “Lock All Desktops” to lock each desktop automatically. To set up a desktop running on a fixed port, tap the '+' icon and add the host name or address and the port as well as the pin.
