iLock is an absolutely brilliant security app ! It is so simple to use and works as advertised. One thing I would like to see is a way to choose your own key-shortcut to expose the iLock settings. I mean, ctrl+alt+cmd+i is a bit awkward to handle. ;-) But this is just nitpicking .. this is truly a very useable app and one I to keep an eye on !

It becomes easier to keep the apps safe with iLock. Now nobody can use my apps without my permission. This app is useful when one mac has many users as in my case.
