Nice - Turns my old USB stick into a key. I'd like to see a few more features. It would be nice if it could stop my music when i yank out the disk.

Second Monitor - This app only blocks one screen. If you have a second monitor, you can access the entire computer. It is better to lock your computer using the OS.

works - it works but i wish it had more customisation options. also the “eject on sleep” mode is useless because when it locks the screen it doesnt automatically sleep
